At Saturday's presidential debate at St. Anselm College, ABC moderator Charlie Gibson quizzed Hillary Clinton on whether she would raise taxes on wealthy American families.
CLINTON: One of the problems with George Bush's tax policy has been the way he has tilted it for the wealthy and the well-connected.According to U.S. Census data, only 3.4 percent of U.S. households have an income of $200,000 or more. And the American Association of University Professors says that a full professor at St. Anselm in has an average salary of $77,400 while assistant professors earn $49,600.
GIBSON: If you take a family of two professors, here at Saint Anselm, they're going to be in the $200,000 category that you're talking about lifting the taxes on.
EDWARDS: Oh, I don't think they agree with you.
OBAMA: I'm not sure that that
CLINTON: That may be NYU, Charlie. I don't think it's St. Anselm.
GIBSON: Two public school teachers in New York?
