McCain flip-flops on tax cuts

From ABC's This Week [yesterday]:

SEN. JOHN MCCAIN: ...we'll argue about whether we should increase your taxes or decrease them. Obviously, I'm for decreases in taxes. Maybe Americans want their taxes increased. We'll argue about --

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: ... for middle-income Americans, only raise them on the wealthy.

MCCAIN: Oh, yes, sure, the wealthy, the wealthy. Always be interested in when people talk about who the, quote, "wealthy" are in America. I find it interesting.

Interesting, like McCain in 2001:

I cannot in good conscience support a tax cut in which so many of the benefits go to the most fortunate among us, at the expense of middle class Americans who most need tax relief.
