In this quote, Dan Quayle is referring to a tactic used by some Republicans at the time of calling tax increases “revenue enhancement” instead. Quayle is suggesting that this was an unsuccessful attempt at rebranding tax increases, as no one was actually fooled by the term “revenue enhancement”.

He implies that the public understood these proposals were still tax increases, even if an alternative term was used. Overall, Quayle means that the Republican party’s effort to reframe tax increases by calling them “revenue enhancement” did not work, as people still viewed them as tax increases.
