Howdy Doody Caught In Colossal Lie About Small Business Tax Increases

Howdy Doody

You have to hand it to the GOP – when they are wrong, they are really, really wrong.

As Speaker John Boehner works to discredit President Obama’s common sense plan to reset upper income tax rates to Clinton-era levels, he is recycling an old lie that he’s already admitted to flubbing in the past.

NPR quotes Boehner speaking about Obama’s tax plan on Nov. 28:

Raising taxes on the so-called top 2 percent, half of those taxpayers are small business owners that pay their taxes through their personal income, tax filing every year.

The Speaker’s staff tried again to pass off the obvious manipulation as a mistake. “ meant to say half of small business income would be hit by the president’s plan for higher tax rates,” said spokesman Brendan Buck. But Boehner’s team gave the same excuse for the same lie a year ago.

2. "Small Business" is defined loosely

Loose enough to include the Koch Brothers.
