“No one is saying that right now, and someone has to say it,” Bill Bradley said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“If we’re going to succeed, we have to face our problems squarely. The deficit is one problem, and that requires taxes on a lot of people, not just the wealthy,” Mr. Bradley said.
The former NBA star, who mounted a 2000 presidential bid but ultimately lost to Al Gore, appeared on CNN on Sunday morning to promote his new book, “We Can All Do Better.”
In it, he lays out controversial steps the federal government should take to turn around a stalled economy. In addition to hiking taxes on many Americans, he proposes a massive $1 trillion infrastructure bill that would fund 50 projects across the nation.
