Romney Didn’t Tell the Truth Over Tax Cuts on Whealthy Americans
This Sunday morning former Speaker of the House and presidential pre-candidate Newt Gingrich said during NBC’s program “Meet the Press”, that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is not telling the truth on tax cuts on wealthy Americans, if he is elected President of the United States on November 6.
GINGRICH: I think you got to look carefully at how Romney structured, what he said is, something that frankly true supply siders don’t necessarily love but it’s good politics, he said, “I will close enough deductions that wealthy Americans will not get a net tax cut.’ Now, that’s a pretty clear description.
GIBBS: Let me just say this. Standing on the stage with you in Arizona, this is what Mitt Romney said.” Number one, I said today we’re going to cut taxes on everyone across the country, by 20%, including the top 1%.” Mr. Speaker, you mentioned that your opponent, Mitt Romney, had a problem with being dishonest in the primary. My question is, was he dishonest when he said that?
GINGRICH: I think it’s clear he changed.
GIBBS: So we don’t disagree that he changed.
