Re: Edward Kleinbard

Edward Kleinbard was quoted on why stating that the congressional tax reforms bill will result in a middle-class tax cut is false. “That’s delusional or dishonest to say. It’s factually untrue,” Kleinbard said. He added, “The only group you can point to that wins year after year and wins in very large magnitude is the very highest incomes.”
