One More Thing about Ted Strickland

by Kevin D. Williamson

This is an outright lie:

Whatever he’s doing to avoid taxes, can it possibly be worse than the Romney-Ryan tax plan that would have sliced Mitt’s total tax rate to less than one percent?

First, there is no such thing as a Romney-Ryan tax plan. (Ask — gasp! — PolitiFact.) There’s a Romney tax plan, and there’s a Ryan tax plan, and Romney is — surprise — running on the Romney plan. Romney’s plan would indeed eliminate capital-gains taxes — for people making $200,000 or less. Romney, famously, makes a lot more than that, mostly from investments that would continue to be taxed at the 15 percent long-term capital-gains rate.
