Better than Monday night Football: 14th CD Stein on Cable and Streaming

Jeff Berkowitz: …Would you repeal those Bush tax cuts?

Jotham Stein: I would repeal the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. I think they were unfair—

Jeff Berkowitz: Does that mean anybody with an income above $150,000 is getting an income tax increase?

Jotham Stein: I would cut them for people with an income above $200,000 because those tax cuts were paid for [by] what? on the backs of the middle class. They took from social security. They increased the deficit. They were blatantly unfair.
