Bob Casey Plays Politics While Families, Job Creators Struggle To Make Ends Meet
 
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) toed the line for his Democrat Party leaders in Washington once again today when he voted to impose a massive tax hike on American job creators struggling to make ends meet amid nearly 10 percent unemployment and a weak economy.
 
The provision that Casey supported this morning, which would have raised taxes for struggling small business owners nationwide, was designed to fail before the vote even took place, marking a new low point in the Democrats’ political posturing over critical tax relief for American job creators.
 
“Americans need jobs – not more political games from the Democrats. But Senator Bob Casey decided it was more important to join his party’s political theatrics while employers nationwide wait for certainty in order to create much-needed jobs,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Press Secretary Amber Marchand.
 
Casey’s vote came on the heels of an announcement this week from the U.S. Department of Labor that the nation’s economy added only 39,000 jobs during November while the unemployment rate rose to 9.8 percent – the worst rate in seven months.
