AFTER TRANSLATING, SHEA-PORTER SAYS SHE WANTS TO RAISE TAXES 15 TIMES IN UNDER 20 MINUTES IN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE DEBATE
“From raising taxes to another round of stimulus, Carol Shea-Porter just doesn’t get it.”
(Manchester – October 24, 2012) When listening to former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter on the campaign trail or in today’s instance, a debate, you sometimes need a translator to help decode the “poll-tested” phrases she uses to hide her liberal tax and spend policies. For instance, every time she says we need another “comprehensive jobs bill, as she did in today’s Manchester Chamber of Commerce debate, that means “another failed federal stimulus plan.” However, the most remarkable phrase Carol Shea-Porter used in this morning’s debate was the phrase “we need to raise revenue.” The translation for “raise revenue?” Higher taxes.
However what’s truly remarkable was the fact she said this phrase or a variation of it not once or even a few times, but rather 15 times in a twenty minute stretch during the Chamber of Commerce debate.
Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Guinta for Congress released the following statement:
“No matter how she tries to sugarcoat it with new poll-tested expressions and Washington jargon, former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter is still peddling the same failed policies of Nancy Pelosi’s Congress.
“From raising taxes to another round of stimulus, Carol Shea-Porter just doesn’t get it. The same failed policies of the past that yielded us 43 consecutive months of unemployment over 8% and a $16 trillion national debt aren’t going to help put Granite Staters back to work. We need new ideas to empower our job creators to create jobs and grow our economy.”
