Clinton Vows No New Middle-Class Taxes If Elected President
During last night's Democratic presidential primary debate, Hillary Clinton pledged, that if she becomes president, she will never raise taxes on the middle class. Of course, taxes shouldn't be raised on anyone, they should be rolled back dramatically. But a no new taxes pledge is a good if minor start.
On its surface, it is a much better proposal than that of Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, who want to "reform" taxes and institute a new value added tax (See: here and here.)
See video of Hillary's pledge here.
Of course, this is Hillary, so if any EPJ readers catch her on the campaign trail, nail her down and ask her: "When you say no new taxes on the middle class do you mean no income taxes, no sales taxes and no value added style taxes? No new taxes of any kind?"
