Jon Huntsman: I’d Call On ‘Highest End Of The Income Spectrum’ To Repair Economy

GOP Presidential candidate Jon Huntsmansat down with PBS NewsHour‘s Jeffrey Brown to discuss the changes he’ll make if he’s elected president of the United States.

During the episode, Huntsman reveals that that, if he’s elected, he would “call on all Americans,” even the wealthiest among us, to help repair our struggling economy.

But, he clarifies, that might not necessarily mean higher taxes:

As president, I wouldn’t hesitate to call on a sacrifice from all of our people, even those at the very highest end of the income spectrum.I’m not saying higher taxes, but there are contributions they can make too.

And, remember that Tweet Huntsman made about global warming, ostensibly aimed at Rick Perry? He talks about that too.
