Op-Ed: At VP debate, Harris refuses to answer 3 key questions

This article originally appeared on Fox Business on October 8, 2020.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate, pointedly refused to answer three of the most important questions she was asked during the vice presidential debate Wednesday night in Salt Lake City. Her evasions left the American people even more confused than before about what the Biden-Harris ticket actually stands for.

When moderator Susan Page of USA Today asked Harris about Biden’s plans to raise taxes by $4 trillion (and counting), for instance, Harris recited a line that she must have expected to put an end to the discussion, insisting several times that Biden would not raise taxes on people who earn less than $400,000.

Unfortunately, Page neglected to point out that the pledge was incompatible with Biden’s frequently stated intention of repealing President Trump’s tax cuts “on day one.”

Fortunately, Vice President Mike Pence refused to let Harris off the hook, pointing out that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) is saving the typical family of four about $2,000 per year on their federal income taxes.

Contrary to Democratic talking points about tax cuts for “the rich” or “the 1 percent,” the Trump tax cuts were carefully engineered to offer broad-based tax relief, with a particular emphasis on reducing the tax burden on blue-collar American workers.
