Republican Talking Points, Tax Edition

Posted on

CREDIT:

Hillary Clinton drops a little anti-tax demagoguery on the voters of Nevada. I wish Barack Obama hadn’t started talking about the need to fix Social Security, but it’s no bettter for Clinton to go around slamming a lifting of the FICA cap as some kind of death blow to the middle class. I assume at some point in her administration she’ll want to increase the tax burden on high-income individuals for some purpose or other.

UPDATE: What Jon Cohn said (he, for the record, is much more of an Obama-critic than I am).
