Gingrich Concedes Romney Wasn’t Honest About His Tax Plan During Debate

Gingrich Concedes Romney Wasn’t Honest About His Tax Plan During Debate



This morning on Meet The Press, Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs confronted Newt Gingrich on a fundamental inconsistency in Romney’s description of his tax plan. During the primary debates, Romney insisted that everyone in America would get a 20% tax cut, including the 1%. But last week’s during his debate with Obama, Romney insisted that his tax cut would not reduce taxes at all for wealthy Americans.

Gingrich acknowledged the clear inconsistency, saying “I think it’s clear he changed.” He described the change as “good politics.”


Watch it:


Of course, while Romney’s spin regarding his plan has changed, the plan itself has not. Independent experts have concluded that, even if Romney eliminated every tax deduction, it still wouldn’t counterbalance his massive tax cuts for the wealthy.

His tax plan was one of 27 issues where Romney was less than honest during the debate. Romney’s campaign also conceded he misstated the truth on green jobs.

****************************************************************

Apparently other members of the GOP are saying Romney wasn't honest during the debate.

Does this surprise you?

Agree, but you know just because they are on the same side does not mean they must stick up for each other even when they know someone is wrong.

LOL that is true. He's good at that.

Quoting mom_to_travis:

But he didn't say he had changed his mind.  He said that he NEVER intended to give a tax cut to the top 1%.  That's not changing your mind.  That's lying.

Oh I know. And really this shouldn't surprise anyone, Gringrich already called Romney a liar before. This doesn't seem like conceding anything to me, it's reiterating.

I think that Republicans should remain supportive of their Candidate.

Those of you whom are voting for Mr. O should really go see the movie '2016'. This ought to change your mind about Mr. O and his agenda in which he is not telling anyone until he is re-elected and we are all doomed. Bye Bye to the America Freedom we all know and Love. Say hello to Socialism and everyone depending on Government for EVERYTHING. No one will be able to be INDEPENDENT Again.
