Joe Biden’s vow Friday not to increase taxes on anyone earning less than $400,000 a year conflicts with his platform, according to outside tax experts.
“The tax policy proposals that he has already put forth would violate that promise because he is already proposing to raise taxes on households that earn less than $400,000,” said Kyle Pomerleau, a resident fellow at the right-leaning American Enterprise Institute.
Biden told CNBC on Friday that “nobody making under $400,000 would have their taxes raised. Period.”
But the Biden plan would, in fact, hit taxpayers earning much less.
