PA GOP: Leadership? Kanjorski Chooses To Campaign Rather Than Address The Largest Tax Increase In Our Nation’s History

PA GOP: Leadership?  Kanjorski Chooses To Campaign Rather Than Address The Largest Tax Increase In Our Nation’s History
 
HARRISBURG – Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason released the following statement regarding Congressman Paul Kanjorski’s vote to adjourn the House without acting as the largest tax increase in the history of the nation is about to be imposed on taxpayers.
 
“Today, Paul Kanjorski decided that campaigning was more important than stopping the largest tax increase in American history,” Gleason said. “At a time when so many families in the 11th Congressional District are struggling to make ends’ meet, Paul Kanjorski decided that he’d rather be running for re-election than actually engaging in the work of the people.”
 
“It’s not surprising that Paul Kanjorski would choose the Obama-Pelosi agenda over the needs of his constituents , considering the fact that he’s voted with Nancy Pelosi 97% of the time. Whether it’s voting for government-run health care or voting to end a Congressional session early so that Democrats can try to hold to their elected offices, Paul Kanjorski has made it clear that he will always put his own self interests ahead of the 11th Congressional District.”
 
According to The Washington Post vote database, Rep. Paul Kanjorski has voted with Nancy Pelosi more than 97 percent of the time.
 
Today, House Democrats including Congressman Paul Kanjorski and Speaker Nancy Pelosi voted to adjourn the House, despite the fact that Americans are facing the largest tax increase in our nation’s history. (House Resolution 321,”Adjournment Resolution,” Roll Call 546)
 
According to The Wall Street Journal, the expiration of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts will impose a massive increase on taxpayers.  For example, a typical single filer with adjusted gross income of around $40,000 it might be about $400 a year and for someone on $80,000, about $1,600.
