Gov. Blunt/Sen. McCaskill on Obama’s Economic Stimulus Plan

July 7th, 2008 by jjjameson · No Comments

Below are a few selected quotes from audio recording today’s conference call with Governor Matt Blunt (R-MO):

Blunt: “While Barack Obama has campaigned on a pledge to not raise taxes for anyone but the rich, that’s clearly not the case. Just this year, in fact, he returned to the United States Senate twice to vote in favor of a budget resolution which would raise income tax rates by 3% for the 25%, 28%, and 33% tax brackets. This would mean a tax increase for those earning as little as $32,000.”

Blunt: “Obviously, I’m very concerned about the policies of Barack Obama in a host of areas, but certainly as it relates to our economy. I believe raising taxes at a very tenuous in American history is not the right answer.”

Blunt: “Not only would Barack Obama’s tax increases devastate the American economy, it would cause tremendous hardship for American families and their personal budgets.”

Blunt: “Certainly, increasing the tax burden on virtually every American family should be troubling to anyone who cares about our nation’s economy or cares about an individual family’s budget.”
