When Congressman Dave Camp Says He ‘Doesn’t Want to Rule Anything Out’ He Means Raising Taxes Is Ruled Out

You should know this.

“I don’t want to rule anything in or out,” Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.) said, according to Reuters. “I am willing to discuss all issues that might help us reduce our short and long-term debt and grow our economy.”

“Everything is on the table until we as a group rule it out,” added Camp, who is chairman of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee.

A spokesman for the Ways and Means Committee said Camp’s opposition to raising taxes remains firm.

“Despite a misleading and inaccurate headline that attempts to tell a story when there isn’t one to tell, Chairman Camp’s position on taxes has not changed,” the spokesman said. “When discussing the concept that all potential solutions ought to ‘be on the table’ or that he ‘won’t rule anything in our out,’ he has always emphasized that any potential solution must be looked at through the prism of jobs and whether those proposed solutions would strengthen the economy. Obviously, tax increases wouldn’t make that list.”
