Bass Campaign Calls on Vice President Biden and Kuster to Explain New Taxes
Concord, NH- With news that Vice President Joe Biden is coming to New Hampshire next week to raise funds for Democrat Annie Kuster’s Congressional campaign in New Hampshire’s 2nd District, the Charlie Bass for Congress campaign today called on Kuster to explain to voters why she supports more than $2 trillion in new taxes from the Barack Obama-Joe Biden agenda.
“Especially in this economy, Annie Kuster’s support of two trillion dollars in new taxes, ‘is a big flipping deal,’ to paraphrase our Vice President,” said Bass campaign spokesperson Scott Tranchemontagne. “In all seriousness, Kuster’s unyielding support for the Obama-Biden government takeover of health care, their refusal to extend the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, and their cap-and-trade legislation will hammer taxpayers so hard, it won’t be funny. Annie Kuster owes an explanation to working families and small business owners, who will be the hardest hit by these unprecedented tax hikes.”
Major Obama-Biden-Kuster Tax Hikes:
- Health Care Reform Act $525 billion in new taxes (CBO, 3/20/10)

- Waxman-Markey Cap and Trade $846 billion in new tax revenue, (CBO estimate, 6/5/09)
Total - $2.1 billion in new taxes supported by Kuster
