Tim Kaine: ‘I would be open to some minimum tax for everyone’
In a debate on Thursday, former Virginia governor and Democratic senate candidate Tim Kaine said he would be open to imposing federal income tax on the 47 percent that don’t presently pay.
David Gregory: “Do you believe that everyone in Virginia should pay something in federal income tax?”
Tim Kaine: “I would be open to a proposal that would have some minimum tax for everyone. But I do insist, many of the 47 percent that Romney was going after pay a higher percentage of their income in taxes than he does. “
