Brown also defended calling his proposal a “millionaires tax’’ on his initiative campaign website, even though the income threshold would be $250,000.
“Anybody who makes $250,000 becomes a millionaire very quickly if you save it. You just need four years,’’ Brown said. “It is a millionaires tax. It taxes millionaires, right? And it’s for schools. And it protects public safety.’’
You know a bad argument when it has many independent planks, all trying to reel in support from various angles.
