During a rally Monday in Omaha, Hillary Clinton said she's "going to raise taxes on the middle class" -- and the entire audience roared with applause.
"Warren [Buffet] is standing up for a fairer tax code, Trump wants to cut taxes for the super-rich," Clinton said.
"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!"
While it's true Hillary Clinton is going to raise taxes on the middle class, a transcript from her website suggests her script actually read "we aren't going to."
I guess she just accidentally told the truth.
Of course, what she said about Trump is a total lie. Trump wants to lower taxes for almost everyone, but not ultra-wealthy hedge funders. These hedge funders have flooded Hillary's campaign coffers with cash while they've given nothing to Trump because he wants to end the carried interest tax rules which allow them to pay almost nothing. Trump bragged about it on Twitter the same day Hillary was giving this speech:
While Hillary claims she want to end the carried interest "loophole" too, they know she's a liar.
Warren Buffet wants higher taxes on everyone because he's the number one recipient of bailout money.
