Joe Biden & Donald TrumpFormer Vice President Joe Biden says people making less than $400,000 a year will not pay a penny more in taxes if he's elected, but "the "voice of America’s taxpayers" warns that his plan would hit the middle class "right in their wallets."

Pete Sepp, president of National Taxpayers Union (NTU), says Biden's plan sounds like a lot of money "until you realize that many small business owners declare and pay their profits on the 1040 tax return and could get caught up in many of the new tax increases."

In fact, according to Sepp, there are many tax increases in Joe Biden's plan that could affect middle-class Americans, "even though Joe Biden will deny it."

He adds that an increase in the corporate income tax rate will be passed along to some degree to workers and shareholders.

"Even the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) acknowledges this," Sepp continues. "Former Vice President Joe Biden has said he wants to fill up the Highway Trust Fund with more revenue, and, well, one way to do that would be to increase fuel taxes. And that would hit the middle class right in their wallets."

Biden also seeks to increase the federal estate tax, also known as the death tax, from 40 percent to 45 percent.

"He would lower the exemption from the estate tax, essentially taking it back to 2009, when Barack Obama was president," warns Sepp. "So, even if you don't consider yourself wealthy, you should still be worried about what former Vice President Biden might be proposing, because the impacts will be felt by the middle class."

With a week to go til Election Day, many polls are showing the Democrat nominee leading President Trump. But not everyone believes the polls are accurate.

"A lot of people do not want to tell a pollster [how they plan to vote]," former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-Arkansas) recently told the "Todd Starnes Show." "They do not want to let members of their own family know that they're voting for Donald Trump because it starts an argument and a fight."

Huckabee went on to use his own voting experience as evidence of Trump's support.

"I vote in a county that voted 84 percent for Donald Trump in 2016, and it is a solid, hard-red Florida panhandle county," Huckabee relayed. "Saturday, my wife and I went to vote. We stood in the rain for an hour -- the only time we've ever stood in line to cast an early ballot in that county."

He believes that is a good sign for President Trump.

"I'm telling you, there are not that many blue voters in the country, period, much less showing up in the rain on Saturday," he continued. "Trump supporters will swim the river at flood stage to vote for Donald Trump, because they are totally committed, and they understand what's at stake."

To Huckabee's thinking, this election is not about personality; it is about the direction of the country now and in the long-term.

"The Biden voters are not so excited about Joe Biden," said Huckabee. "They just hate Donald Trump, and that is all that is driving them."

But the former governor does not think Biden's base hates the president enough to "weather the storm, so to speak."
