Jim Bender calls out Democrats on their tax-pledge flip-flopping as they try to raise taxes on more Americans

Jim Bender - US Senate 2010

HOLLIS, NH – Jim Bender, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate released the following statement regarding the Democrats assertion that the tax cuts passed in 2001 and 2003 may no longer be sustainable as the U.S. tries to reduce its growing debt. 

“This is a flip flop; raising taxes on families who are already struggling in this economy is unimaginable, said Bender.  "The Democrats were happy to stand with the President when he said he would not raise taxes on the middle class, but now the Democrat leadership is changing their tune. They are blaming these tax increases on the huge debt and deficit.  They need to understand we have to cut spending first before we go back to the American people for more of their hard earned money.  This is an issue of trust and accountability of our elected leaders.  I will go to Washington and fight for no new tax increases; fight for lower spending, call for reviews of all government programs to make sure it is good for the people of New Hampshire.  That is my word.”
