SHARE CLINTON MISLEADING U.S., BUSH CAMPAIGNERS SAY

The Bush/Quayle campaign office said presidential candidate Bill Clinton is misleading the American people about revenues, taxes and promises.

In a press release the office said, "Bill Clinton has said his record-breaking $150 billion tax hike will only hit those making at least $200,000, or the top 2 percent of American taxpayers."The IRS, the release said, points out the top 2 percent of American taxpayers actually starts with individuals earning $64,000 in taxable income.

This would force Clinton to readjust his plans.

"To meet his own tax revenue goal of $150 billion, Clinton will have to raise taxes to 36 percent on individuals with taxable income starting at $36,000 a year," the release said.

Clinton has hundreds of billion of dollars more in promises that he has not funded, the release said. To compensate, Clinton would have to start his tax increase with taxable incomes as low as $20,100.
