Hillary Clinton is backtracking her pledge on middle class taxes. Why are we not surprised?
Daily Caller News Foundation reports:
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wavered on her pledge not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 a year during an appearance on â€œThis WeekÂ With George Stephanopoulosâ€ Sunday.
When asked if her claims areÂ â€œrock solid read-my-lips promise,â€ the former secretary of state tellsÂ the host itâ€™s a goal not to increase taxes, but doesnâ€™tÂ say itâ€™s out of the realm of possibility.
â€œWell, it certainly is my goal. And Iâ€™ve laid it out in this campaign. And itâ€™s something that President Obama promised,â€ she says. â€œItâ€™s something my husband certainly tried to achieve. Because I want Americans to know that I get it.â€
