The Real McCain Record


The record shows, and I discussed it at length on my show tonight, that McCain’s primary opposition to the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts was because, he said, they were too beneficial to the wealthy and not the middle class.  His class warfare rhetoric was straight out of the liberal playbook.  I mention this because I am troubled by him stating, in a second debate now, that he opposed the cuts because of a lack of spending cuts.  Maybe he did that too, but there is simply not debate that he spoke repeatedly about tax cuts for the rich.  I wish the panel of questioners were, by now, prepared for this.
