President Obama in 2011 Video said Exactly what GOP Now Proposes for Fiscal Cliff Deal: $1.2 Trillion in Additional Revenue can be Found “Without Hiking Tax Rates, but. . . by Eliminating Loopholes” and “some Deductions” – Video 2011
Here is President Barack Obama in 2011 saying he could raise an additional $1.2 Trillion in revenue “which could be accomplished without hiking tax rates, but could simply be accomplished by eliminating loopholes, eliminating some deductions, and engaging in a tax reform process that could lower the rates generally while broadening the base.”
That’s almost exactly what Republicans are now proposing instead of raising tax rates! Obama is now saying there can be no deal if tax rates do not go up.
I wonder if anyone in the brave White House Press Corps will call Obama on this?
