Many fibs, half-truths, and lies are told during Sunday talk-show appearances, but this one stands out as being particularly preposterous
Christie: Gov. Romney’s not talking about more tax cuts for the wealthy. In fact, what he said is that the wealthy will pay just as much under a Romney administration as they pay today.
Perhaps in bizarro world this is true, but in reality Mitt Romney has mentioned cutting taxes in virtually every stump speech he has given since he began running for president 5 years ago.
Romney’s own campaign website proposes cutting cutting taxes for the wealthy and the Ryan budget, which Romney approves of, cuts the top marginal tax rate by over 10 percent.
Both Romney and Ryan have also proposed eliminating taxes on capital gains. This would be a significant tax cut for the wealthy because taxes on capital gains are the only taxes many of them pay.
Chris Christie is so off-message he probably woke Grover Norquist after he had already gone to ground for the day.
