Gingrich Concedes Romney Wasn’t Honest About His Tax Plan During Debate



This morning on Meet The Press, Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs confronted Newt Gingrich on a fundamental inconsistency in Romney’s description of his tax plan. During the primary debates, Romney insisted that everyone in America would get a 20% tax cut, including the 1%. But last week’s during his debate with Obama, Romney insisted that his tax cut would not reduce taxes at all for wealthy Americans.

Gingrich acknowledged the clear inconsistency, saying “I think it’s clear he changed.” He described the change as “good politics.”


Watch it:


Of course, while Romney’s spin regarding his plan has changed, the plan itself has not. Independent experts have concluded that, even if Romney eliminated every tax deduction, it still wouldn’t counterbalance his massive tax cuts for the wealthy.

His tax plan was one of 27 issues where Romney was less than honest during the debate. Romney’s campaign also conceded he misstated the truth on green jobs.

****************************************************************

Apparently other members of the GOP are saying Romney wasn't honest during the debate.

Does this surprise you?

    No, it doesn't. They may be on the same general side, but that doesn't make them stupid.

    It IS pretty bad when members of your own party are calling you out.

    I am not surprised. His tax plan is impossible math wise.

    Same here.  I think they could turn the sky green and it wouldn't surprise me.

    But he didn't say he had changed his mind.  He said that he NEVER intended to give a tax cut to the top 1%.  That's not changing your mind.  That's lying.
