Ed Gillespie Calls Tax Policy Center A ‘Liberal Think Tank’

Romney campaign adviser Ed Gillespie sought to discredit the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center after it concluded that Mitt Romney cannot keep his tax cuts deficit neutral simply by targeting loopholes for high incomes.

“There’s one study that says that you can’t — that uses the word assume or assumption 68 times — by a liberal think tank, and that’s what [Robert] Gibbs and others point to,” he said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”
