Five times last night Mike Pence called out Tim Kaine for Hillary Clinton’s $1 trillion tax hike plan.

Five times, Kaine didn’t deny it. Let’s review:

1. “Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine want more of the same. It really is remarkable that they actually are advocating a trillion dollars in tax increases, which I get that. You tried to raise taxes here in Virginia and were unsuccessful.”

2. “But a trillion dollars in tax increases, more regulation, more of the same war on coal, and more of Obamacare that now even former President Bill Clinton calls Obamacare a crazy plan.”

3. “Look, what -- what you all just heard out there is more taxes, $2 trillion in more spending, more deficits, more debt, more government.”

4. “The only issue on taxes -- Hillary Clinton is going to raise taxes, and Donald Trump and I are going to cut them."

5. “They’re going to raise your taxes. We're going to cut your taxes." 

Kaine didn’t deny a single statement on taxes made by Pence. Not once did he tell the American public that his intention wasn’t exactly what everyone already knew it was: a massive tax hike on the American people.

Kaine even doubled down on Hillary’s endorsement of a payroll tax increase.
