What’s More Popular? Toomey’s Giveaways for the Wealthy or a Packers Fan at Lincoln Financial Field?

Pat Toomey: Wall Street’s Most Valuable Player
Harrisburg, PA — With the Eagles taking on the Packers and the Steelers playing the Falcons, Pennsylvanians across the state are ready for the football season to start. But the NFL season is off to the wrong start for Wall Street’s MVP Pat Toomey. Recent polls show that the Wall Street derivatives trader’s top campaign promise to extend the Bush tax giveaways for the wealthy and Wall Street CEOs are about as popular as a Packers fan at Lincoln Financial Field. A majority of Americans soundly reject the deficit-exploding Toomey-Bush tax giveaways for the wealthy, which have added $2 trillion to the deficit at the expense of middle-class Pennsylvanians.
“The promises of Wall Street’s MVP Pat Toomey may sound like music to the ears of the wealthy and Wall Street CEOs, but Toomey’s deficit-exploding tax giveaways are out of the mainstream and out-of-touch with Pennsylvanians,” said Pennsylvania Democratic Party spokesman Mark Nicastre. “Pat Toomey can’t fool Pennsylvanians. When given the choice to stand up for Pennsylvania families or Wall Street, Pat Toomey chooses his special corporate interest friends on Wall Street every time. And that’s what makes him Wall Street’s most valuable player.”
