Ed Markey Can’t Remember a Tax Increase He’s Ever Opposed

Rep. Ed Markey (D., Mass.) says he cannot recall an instance where he has ever opposed a tax increase, The Weekly Standard reports:

"Are there areas where you've broken with your party leadership where they've pushed for some kind of tax increase and you've said no?" a reporter asked Markey.

"I'm sorry, excuse me?" Markey responded.

"Is there an instance where the party leadership, the Democratic leadership pushed for a higher tax, an income tax increase, and you've said no?" the reporter tried again.

"Um, well, I would review my record, and I will get back to you on that," Markey said.

Markey is running against former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez to fill the senate seat vacated by Secretary of State John Kerry.
