Mitt's - Noun, Verb, Lie

Noun, Verb, Lie
Posted on 06/18/2012 at 7:11 am by Bob Cesca
Here’s more of Romney lying about his tax reform plan ob CBS’s Face the Nation:

“One of the absolute requirements of any tax reform that I have in mind is that people who are the high end, whether you call them the 1 percent, 2 percent, half a percent, the people at the high end will still pay the same share of the tax burden they’re paying now. I’m not looking for a tax cut for the very wealthiest.”

That’s a lie. First, a reminder: Romney is in the 1 percent — of the 1 percent. Second, there’s this bit of analysis from Citizens for Tax Justice we ran a couple weeks ago:

Romney wants to lower current tax rates for everyone by 20 percent. This benefits the wealthy most:
Dropping the highest bracket from 35 percent to 28 percent, for example, yields a much bigger savings for those at the top than lowering the 15 percent bracket to 12 percent brings for taxpayers in that group.

Unless Romney just yesterday revised his tax plan, he lied about it on national television.
