Matt Taibbi: 'Romney/Ryan Tax Plan Still Makes No Sense’

Taibbi urges the media to demand answers

Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone contributing editor, joins “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer to discuss his recent article explaining why he feels the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan tax plan should not be taken seriously.

“Every single day in the newspapers it should be, you know, ‘Romney/Ryan tax plan still makes no sense,’” Taibbi says. “They should be getting hammered every single day for doing this because it’s an incredibly cynical thing what they’re doing — they’re making this extravagant promise. They’re saying, ‘We’re going to cut everybody’s taxes by 20 percent, it’s going to be like fairyland,’ and yet they’re being treated as though it’s a serious political campaign and they should be being slaughtered by the press for this.”
