PolitiFact Virginia: The Tax Code

As Congressional Democrats and Republicans work toward what they hope will be reductions in the federal deficit, there is no shortage of claims and counter-claims about the budget. A favorite target for criticism is the Tax Code. Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor recently said the income tax is so flawed that nearly 50% of all federal filers pay “no” tax. Researchers at the website PolitiFact-Virginia.com  decided to check out that claim by Congressman Cantor.  Virginia Public Radio’s Fred Echols talked with Warren Fiske with PolitiFact, in his office at the Richmond Times Dispatch.
