Nancy Boyda stood in front of a camera, taped a commercial, and ran it on the air. On the commercial she said, "I'm not going to raise your taxes."
Well, she lied.
Just a few hours ago, Nancy Boyda voted for the Democrat budget which would raise taxes by $400 billion over the next five years - it would be the largest tax increase in history.
Funny how it's just another example of Boyda saying one thing to get elected last fall, but then going to Washington and doing something different.
So, Boyda voted for a bloated Supplemental Appropriations bill that was full of pork as payoffs for votes, now she's voting for a tax increase to pay for it. Tax & Spend. Yep, that's the liberal mantra. Then again, Boyda is voting with Nancy Pelosi 98% of the time and Pelosi is a liberal from San Francisco, so it makes sense.
[Update: 10:47 am] The Kansas Republican Party has sent out a press release hitting Boyda on this vote. And, they included one fact I should have pointed out, not only did this raise taxes by $400 billion over five years, but for next year it proposes to raise non-defense spending by $24 billion over the President's request. TAX and SPEND!
And they asked: Why does Nancy Boyda want to increase taxes at the expense of hard-working Americans?
By voting YES on Roll Call vote 212, Boyda supported:
* Raising the 10 percent tax rate bracket to 15 percent that wouldraise the taxes of more than five million individuals and families whopreviously owed no taxes.
* Eliminating marriage penalty tax relief, which would cause tax hikesfor 23 million taxpayers and middle-class families, on average, by $466 in2011.
* Cutting the child tax credit in half. This tax increase would raisetaxes for 31 million taxpayers and middle-class families, on average, by$859 in 2011.
* Increasing the Death Tax by $91 billion dollars.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
