Sssh! Whatever Rand Paul has said before doesn’t count, mmkay? He said so.
The day after his campaign launch, the tax section of Paul’s website has mysteriously disappeared.
The National Journal reports:
Previously, Paul has said he would propose the largest tax cut in American history. In a Facebook town hall Tuesday, Paul said he thought the Internal Revenue Service was too big and powerful and promised to simplify the tax system.
His tax plan, as previously described on his website and described elsewhere, would have a flat income-tax rate of 17 percent, as well as eliminate the estate tax, the alternative minimum tax, and taxation on investment income like capital gains on the individual level. In addition, Paul’s initial plan would create an exemption of the payroll tax used to pay for Social Security for lower and middle-income families.
All of this seems like standard Republican discussions on taxation. Imminent Republican presidential challenger Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Mike Lee also have proposed eliminating taxation on investment income on the individual level.
But on Wednesday, the tax section of Paul’s “Issues” vertical peculiarly disappeared.
Poof! All gone — except for the cached copy of the page.
If only he could disappear himself from politics:(
