Hillary Clinton's press secretary promises tax hikes will be in her presidential campaign's policy proposals, to be released this summer and fall. Rather than use the toxic phrase "tax hikes," press secretary Brian Fallon disguised the coming proposals as "revenue enhancements."
The promise came in a tweet Monday evening, reading ".@BuzzFeedAndrew We are rolling out major policy proposals over the summer/fall. Among those proposals will be revenue enhancements."
Fallon was tweeting in response to criticism that Clinton's proposal for universal preschool did not describe how the expensive program would be paid for, as pointed out the by the Washington Examiner's Philip Klein.
Of course, "revenue enhancements" is code for tax hikes. During the Bill Clinton administration, another code word for this was "broad-based contributions."
