Speaking at a campaign rally Tuesday in Nebraska with billionaire Warren Buffett, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump for wanting to “cut taxes for the super-rich.” She then followed up by promising she would “raise taxes on the middle class.”
“Trump wants to cut taxes for the super-rich,” Clinton told the jeering crowd. “Well we’re not going there, my friends. I’m telling you right now, we’re going to write fairer rules for the middle class and we are going to raise taxes on the middle class!”
The crowd cheered and Clinton appeared unaware of her Freudian slip.
She has said she plans to cut taxes for the middle class, but an analysis by Americans for Tax Reform examines how Clinton’s tax proposals would actually raise taxes on the middle class.
