Harriet Miers on Tax Reform
Supreme Court Justice (nominated by Pres. George W. Bush 2005; withdrew)
When I began I was still under the illusion that I could get everyone in the room "on message," as I'd done on so many issues over the years. Within 5 seconds of finishing my pitch, however, it was apparent that was not true to be the case this time.
I took question after question. Wall Street Journal editorial writer John Fund asked why Harriet had supported an $800 million tax increase as a member of the Dallas City Council, casting the deciding vote in a 6-5 split. I didn't even know about it.
