FOX News Calls Out Romney Aide on Impossible Tax Math: VIDEO


FOX News (shocker) host Chris Wallace gets tough with Ed Gillespie on Romney's impossible tax math on FOX News Sunday yesterday.

Writes Americablog:

Chris Wallace then challenged Gillespie on the Romney lie that “six different studies have said this is entirely doable,” meaning, you can lower taxes by cutting deductions, without busting the budget.  We know that those “six studies” aren’t studies at all, four of them are blog posts or op eds, and the fifth is simply a paper from the uber-right-wing Heritage Foundation.  And amazingly, Wallace noted just these facts.

  2. How do you go from "It's a right leaning think tank," to "It's non-partisan."

  3. It seems that they think if you repeat the same talking points multiple times, they will become true.

  4. Wow. Is Chris Wallace having a Mike Wallace moment? Is he finally realizing that going after the facts is more important than going after the Fox pay check?

  5. How do I get a job as a Romney Aide? You don't have to do any work since no numbers or specifics have been calculated by them, and the work they should be doing is hoisted off on Congress to actually be figured out "Across the Aisle". I bet they get benefits too!

    More likely Murdoch knows mitt won't win and with his possible violations of foreign bribery and spying, he is in danger of ending up in fed prison down the road so he is trying to win favors with Obama

    Thus why Fox will also be running a 100% pro Obama and seal team 6 getting Osama docudrama the week of the election

    Murdoch wants to stay out of jail and with his empire crumbling in the Uk, he has to try to butter up the refs in the US before they bust him

  7. I guess Chris finally decided to make his father proud.

  8. Like the birthers, the supply-siders just never let it go. Both are a cancer on America.

  9. I'm sorry, but Ed Gillespie was just made to look like a fool. To listen to him try to justify the tax position was painful. I applaud Chris Wallace for the challenge!

  10. There's no actual intent to pay for the tax cut. The intent is to drive the federal deficit so high that only a severe cut in social benefits will reduce it.

    Ever since FDR the Republicans have wanted to destroy social security programs because they simple-mindedly equate "social" with "socialism." (And no, they are not the same thing at all.)

  11. That guy looks like a lying rat!

  12. "Six different studies"

    "different" meaning what ?

    4 blog posts and an op ed piece ?

    Now those are real "different" kinds of studies !

  13. If this Romney-Ryan plan is supposed to be "revenue neutral", why are we going to all the trouble to change the current tax structure?
    They argue that the rich will pay the same amount in taxes because they'll close special unspecified loophole deductions, but THE ONLY reason to make a change is to give someone a better deal.... and it won't be the middle class.
