4월에 18 트위터, 대통령이 말했다 “의회 공화당은 이제 중산층 가족에 대한 세금 인상을 원합니다,” 그는 그런 일이 일어나도록 두지 않을 것이라고 덧붙였습니다.. The root of Biden’s assertion is a plan outlined by Sen. 릭 스콧, R-Fla.
Scott put forth an 11-point plan, 그것은 말한다 “all Americans should pay some income tax to have skin in the game, even if a small amount. Currently over half of Americans pay no income tax.”
Biden and his administration have repeatedly suggested that Republicans back the plan and White House Press secretary Jen Psaki reiterated the claims Tuesday during a press conference.
“Psaki’s comments only reaffirmed why our original analysis was correct. We will concentrate on her explanation of why Biden claimed that a ‘majority’ of Republicans back Scott’s plan,” The Washington Post reported in another piece addressing the April fact check.
Psaki quoted multiple senators, 센 포함. 론 존슨, R-Wis., 이것의. Mike Braun, 껍질., 대표. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Schumer는 Biden 행정부에 아이티로의 추방을 중단하도록 촉구하기 위해 수십 명의 민주당원과 합류했습니다.. 토미 튜 버빌, R-Ala., who offered vague praise of Scott’s delivery of the plan, according to the Washington Post.
The Washington Post reported that none of those senators endorsed the proposal in question and have instead voiced “generic words of support for the idea of releasing a plan.”
Senate Minority Whip John Thune, R-S.D, 말했다 Tuesday that he does not endorse Scott’s plan and it would be a stretch for Democrats to suggest that the Republican Party was supporting the agenda.
“If they try and run campaign ads against individual senators who haven’t adopted that plan, then I don’t know how straight-faced you can make that argument,” Thune said. “That doesn’t mean it won’t be done.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY., has criticized the bill as well.
“We reaffirm our rating of Three — nearly Four — Pinocchios,” the fact check said.
Biden reiterated the claim that Republicans want to raise taxes in his Tuesday speech that focused on inflation and increased prices. During a Wednesday speech addressing the Democratic National Committee, 그 말했다 that Scott’s plan was “what the Republican Party stands for, what they’re going to run on.”
