About the budget:
I can’t support a budget, from either party, that raises taxes on the middle class. I campaigned on a platform of middle-class tax relief, and I was elected to Washington to bring about change. When asked to choose between my party and the people I represent, I will choose the families of the [my] district every single time.
I voted against [the budget] because it allows tax cuts to expire in 2010, raising taxes on most American taxpayers, I promised the people of the [my district] to vote with my party when they are right, and vote against them when they are wrong. My vote today was the right vote for my constituents.
Who said these things? The first is from Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL-14), and the second is from Congressman Dan Cazayoux (D-LA-06). What do these men have in common? They're both Democrats, and they both don't want to raise taxes on the middle class. And both voted against the Democrat budget plan.
Huh. Imagine that.
