(Updated) An Object Lesson on "Doublespeak"--Senator Chuck Schumer on Tax Reform
If you've any doubts as to whether the Democratic Party Leadership is "looking out for the little guy," check out this C-Span video of Senator Chuck Schumer (NY) addressing the National Press Club on October 9, 2012.
[The wrong embed code was attached to this video, so I made a 1 minute 51 second clip of the pertinent segment. Thankfully, the "url" works.]
Please take a moment to view Senator Schumer's discussion of "which middle income tax deductions he would keep."
The video clip is entitled, "Schumer's Treatment Of Employer-Sponsored Health Benefits."
