Hillary: My Tax Increases Only for the Rich

Americans can look forward to higher federal taxes if Hillary Clinton has her way as president.

Speaking at a fund-raising event with billionaire investor Warren Buffett on Tuesday, Clinton said she is “not going to stand in the way of the Bush tax cuts on the highest earners being sunsetted” when they expire. And she said tax hikes — or “stimulus” — will likely be part of her economic policy.

Hillary also told Fox Business anchor Liz Claman: “I want as broad a base set of stimulus policy as we can get.”

Current U.S. tax policy is “too tilted toward the wealthiest among us,” Clinton said, defining the wealthy as those earning more than $250,000 a year.
