Rob Portman: Pelosi-Obama Position On Tax Rates Based On “Democrat Dogma”

From HuffPo:

WASHINGTON — A senior Republican senator on Tuesday accused House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — and President Obama by extension — of basing their tax policy position on “Democrat dogma.”

“I saw Nancy Pelosi’s comments … saying you can’t get enough revenues through the itemized deductions and closing loopholes. That’s just not accurate. I mean, it’s just not accurate. You can,” Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) told The Huffington Post.

“You can get more revenue if you wanted to. So I don’t know where her math is coming from. It sounds to me like it’s more just a matter of Democrat dogma that they want to be sure that people’s tax rates go up,” Portman said in a phone interview.

“The problem with that is, it’s going to result in more lost jobs at a time when we’ve already lost too many. Rates do affect people’s behavior. They do make the small business owners I was with today less likely to take a risk, make an investment, add the job, buy the truck,” he said.
