Via Reuters, apparently GOP Senator John Kyl just said this on The Senate Floor:
“If the government sells something and gets revenue from it, that’s revenue. If there is a user fee of some kind and we want to raise that to keep up with the times, that’s revenue. And if you add up all of the revenues that we Republicans have agreed to, it’s between $150 billion and $200 billion.”
So that doesn’t sound like tax increases per say, but given GOP adamance that the government should not take in any new revenues, that’s still odd.
