Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Biden promised no new taxes for families making under $400k, but his Commerce nominee just said something else entirely”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo said during a Senate hearing Tuesday for her nomination that the administration would have to remain open to new taxation on middle class families in order to fund policies on climate change and infrastructure improvement.

Raimondo was asked by Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) to comment on whether she would be in favor of new taxes including a gas tax.

"Let me say this. I, as governor, am deeply in touch with how much increasing bills affect the average American family," responded Raimondo.

"Having said that, we do need to meet the climate change challenge and we need funds for improved infrastructure – better roads, safer roads, safer bridges – which also creates jobs. So I would look to balance those interests and work as a piece of the president's team," she added.
