Hillary Spokesman Warns of "Revenue Enhancements"
Hillary Clinton's press secretary Monday night warned of upcoming plans for "revenue enhancements" to be announced by the candidate.
In a tweet, press secretary Brian Fallon said: "We are rolling out major policy proposals over the summer/fall. Among these proposals will be revenue enhancements."

The Clinton camp's warning of tax increases is consistent with a career record in support of tax hikes and opposition to tax cuts. As a Senator, Clinton voted against income tax relief for all Americans.
Other key tax votes include:
- Voted against cutting the capital gains and dividends tax.
- Voted against killing the Death Tax.
- Voted against doubling the child tax credit.
- Voted against ending the marriage penalty for most Americans.
- Voted against killing the Alternative Minimum Tax
Hillary Clinton's use of the Orwellian term "revenue enhancements" echoes language from the Bill Clinton White House, which described taxes as "broad-based contributions."
