Rich Becker deserves this endorsement and he clearly deserves to replace the Wall Street lackey Nan Hayworth. Hayworth not only voted to water down Wall Street rules soon after the Wall Street-induced crash of 2008, but the tax plan that she voted for (the Ryan Plan) would actually INCREASE TAXES on the middle class!
Sadly, it is true: a vote for Nan Hayworth is a vote to INCREASE your own taxes!
Here is an article about that in the Washington Post:
Middle class could face higher taxes under Republican plan, analysis finds
June 19, 2012
The tax reform plan that House Republicans have advanced would sharply cut taxes for the wealthiest Americans and could leave middle-class households facing much larger tax bills, according to a new analysis set to be released Wednesday.
The net result: Married couples in that income range would pay an additional $2,700 annually to the Internal Revenue Service
“Even with eliminating fairly major tax preferences, the Ryan tax plan remains regressive. That’s the bottom line,” he said. “Unless you go after the tax preferences that benefit the wealthy” — capital gains, dividends, tax-free interest on municipal bonds — “it’s really hard to undo the regressivity of the rate changes. You’ll be shifting the burden of the tax code toward the middle class.”
I live out of state currently but I was born and raised only a couple of miles from the Elephant Hotel. I still have family in Somers. Simply put, Wall Street does not need more representation in the 19th district of New York!!!! My middle class family and every middle class family in Somers needs relief from the draconian, regressive, anti-middle class policies of the radical right wing.
Vote for Rich Becker and vote for President Obama in November! View Comment
