Posted on 11/10/2017 12:56:39 PM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is walking back his claim that no middle class Americans will see a tax increase under the Senate GOP plan.
"I misspoke on that. You can't guarantee that absolutely no one sees a tax increase," McConnell told The New York Times on Friday.
McConnell added that "what we are doing is targeting levels of income and looking at the average in those levels and the average will be tax relief for the average taxpayer in each of those segments."

Cut the corporate rate to 20%, cut individual rates across the board, eliminate the Death Tax, eliminate the Earned Income Tax Credit, and call it a day.
Yes, it looks more like ‘taxation redistribution’...not taxation reduction.
Good heavens. Have you ever seen a more half-assed job of passing a major Senate bill? This guy couldn’t even sell a life jacket to a drowning man.
so McConnell thinks we voted R because we wanted our taxes increased?
My LORD, when can we retire this GOPe Turkey?
gobble gobble gobble
So, basically, the middle class is going to get a tax increase.
The Republican party is an absolute joke. It is nothing more than a fake opposition to the Democrat party to fool people into believing that there is more than one political party in DC.
There is only one party, the political aristocrat elites, and they pretend to be Democrats and Republicans just to make it look like your vote matters. But your vote doesn’t matter, because if you dare vote for someone they don’t approve of, they will do everything they can to destroy that person.
Outlaw illegal aliens getting refund checks.
Some of them are paying no taxes and getting checks.
Let us not forget what used to be said concerning the term “misspoke” during BHO years....
Misspoke = lies
“You can keep your doctor”
I don’t think McTurtle misspoke, I think he said the truth, but his people started yelling at him because he let the cat out of the bag...
He hasn’t had ONE BILL passed since Our President has taken office, because as we all know, it wouldn’t make it past Our President’s desk, he would send it back, marking this paragraph with: WRONG: I don’t want this, this is what I want for the American People...
Why did you put that statement in there? You know this isn’t right, put it the way I want it for the American People and I will sign it...
Over (as I hear through the grape vine) 200 bills are in the Senate and NOT ONE has been voted on or passed to send to Our President...
And here is McTurtle yelling and screaming for Judge Moore to step aside, LMAO right McTurtle, if anyone needs to step aside it is you, right into the drain of the swamp more than you already are!!!
Can turtles walk backwards?
McConnell ‘misspoke’ on claim that no one in middle class would get tax increase
McConnell is an idiot and a text book classic example of the Peter Principal.
This man is a fraud and a liar. I am wanting him to step down asap.
Chamber of Commerce gets a tax break, paid for by Main Street.
Only if telling the truth is ‘mis-speaking’
Cruz is right. McConnell is a liar.
Yeah, Misspoke. Right.
He lied, then lied about lying.
Aime to toss Mitch in the ditch. Good for nothing, actually less than nothing.
We really only have ourselves to blame. When was the last time you could ‘believe’ anything Mother Government was trying to ‘give or take’ from you? I spent ALL of my working years thwarting the Tax Man at every turn. It was my hobby, actually. ;)
EVERY tax-paying American really needs to sit down and LEARN about their taxes, what is owed and when and take the steps needed to reduce your taxable income wherever you can.
It always AMAZED me that people REJOICED over getting a Tax Refund, and how they were going to spend it and treat themselves with it! *Rolleyes*
That’s money Mother Government CONFISCATED FROM YOU and got to use for her hare-brained SCHEMES, INTEREST-FREE from YOU for an entire YEAR, ya dolt! All I can do is shake my head...
My best year ever? I got $22 back from my state and owed $57 to the Feds. Now THAT is watching your hard-earned money like a hawk!
If I can do it, anyone can. Never an audit, either.
(Well...up until now, since I’m being so, ‘Unpatriotic’ and admitting to not blindly handing over my cash like a good little Serf! Screw. Them.)
‘Misspoke’ is Newspeak for lied, but a rose by any other name...
But that would mean a pay cut for fedzilla. That's just crazy talk!
