While speaking in Omaha, Nebraska, on Monday, Hillary Clinton promised to raise taxes on the middle class. Demonstrating why we refer to leftists as “low-information” voters, the crowd actually cheered.
“Because while Warren (Buffett) is standing up for a fairer tax code, Trump wants to cut taxes for the super-rich,” she said. “Well, we’re not going there, my friends. I’m telling you, right now – we’re going to write fairer rules for the middle class and we are going to raise taxes on the middle class!”
Don’t take my word for it — here’s video of her comments:
The Daily Wire noted:
Presumably a slip of the tongue, Clinton’s comment came amid broader Marxist-themed demagoguery about forcing “the wealthy” to “pay their fair share” of taxes.
Buffet was praised for comments he made in 2012 in which he claimed to pay a lower percentage of his income as federal tax than his secretary, feeding into the Occupy Wall Street movement’s class warfare narratives.
No comments were made about the approximately 45% of Americans who do not pay federal income taxes. In 2014, between 51 and 55 percent of total federal income taxes were paid by individuals earning $250,000 or more.
According to Americans for Tax Reform, Clinton’s planned net tax increase on the American people is at least $1 trillion over the next ten years:
Hillary has endorsed several tax increases on middle income Americans, despite her pledge not to raise taxes on any American making less than $250,000. She has said she would be fine with a payroll tax hike on all Americans, she has endorsed a steep soda tax, endorsed a 25% national gun tax, and most recently, her campaign manager John Podesta said she would be open to a carbon tax. It’s no wonder that when asked by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos if her pledge was a “rock-solid” promise, she slipped and said the pledge was merely a “goal.” In other words, she’s going to raise taxes on middle income Americans.
Got that? She’s open to a payroll tax hike, a soda tax, a gun tax and possibly a carbon tax.
There’s one other possibility — maybe she just got confused again. I rather doubt it, however — I think she knows full well what she intends to do to the average American and just let the cat out of the bag…
