Lincoln and Tim Griffin, together

Posted By on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 1:57 PM

Speaking of Tim Griffin, Sen. Blanche Lincoln uses his conversion on the "fair" tax in her latest ad attacking John Boozman for supporting the 30 percent national sales tax. (It's called a 23 percent tax, but it's 30 based on the way sales taxes are conventionally expressed.)

A Lincoln release pretty well takes apart any argument Boozman, or anyone else, has on the "fair" tax.

Griffin, by the way, tells Roby Brock through a spokesman that he appreciates Lincoln quoting him accurately. He'd prefer that Elliott not quote his contradicting lavish praise of the Fair Tax and his continuing support for a "flat" tax larded with special treatments that make the tax anything but flat.
