Bill Clinton regrets comments on tax cuts

in Uncategorized by

Bill Clinton told CNN that he regrets “the swirl over comments he made earlier in the week in which he appeared to suggest he would be open to extending the so-called Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.”

Said Clinton: “I’m very sorry about what happened. I thought something had to be done on the ‘fiscal cliff’ before the election. Apparently nothing has to be done until the first of the year.”

Republicans said the comments suggested Clinton didn’t support President Obama on a key issue.

Clinton added that President Obama has “done a good job, a really good job under very trying circumstances” and stressed that he is “strongly committed” to Obama’s re-election.
