Did Joe Biden mislead the country about his tax plans during his campaign for president? Unless Jen Psaki misspoke this afternoon, it sure looks as if he did. Here’s what she said:
Psaki says potential tax increase on those making $400,000 or more means that income threshold applies to “families.”

This is directly at odds with the promise on Joe Biden’s website, which reads:
Joe Biden will not raise taxes on anyone making less than $400,000. Period.
One cannot square “anyone” and “families.” And what is that “period” doing there, if not to make the preceding statement emphatic?
It is also at odds with what Biden said this morning on Good Morning America:
“Anybody making more than $400,000 will see a small to a significant tax increase,” Biden said during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “You make less than $400,000, you won’t see one single penny in additional federal tax.”
Anybody. Not any family.
And it is at odds with what Jen Psaki said yesterday:
“The president remains committed to his pledge from the campaign that nobody making under $400,000 a year will have their taxes increased.”
Nobody. Not no household.
Watch this space.
