Okay, when I'm wrong, I'm wrong. Here I've been repeating the claim of those who've analyzed The Rominee's tax plan that he'd be raising taxes on middle income people. But the man himself has cleared things up in an interview with George Stephanopoulos, and made it obvious we've been lying.
"Let me tell you, George, the fundamentals of my tax policy are these. Number one, reduce tax burdens on middle-income people. So no one can say my plan is going to raise taxes on middle-income people, because principle number one is keep the burden down on middle-income taxpayers"
Well, I can admit it when I've erred... Mr Romney has the average person in his heart and.... What's that? (Holds finger to ear, like Jon Stewart does when pretending he's getting a message from the control booth). He said what? Oh. Sorry. I'm being told he defined "middle income" as 200 - 250 thousand dollars!!!
