Jerry Costello Votes to Raise Your Taxes so He Can Take A Vacation

Jerry Costello was in such a hurry to leave for vacation that he voted to leave Congress early in order to keep from voting to extend the Bush tax cuts.

PRLog - Sep. 29, 2010 - BELLEVILLE, Ill. -- Jerry Costello was in such a hurry to leave Washington to campaign against his surging opponent Teri Newman, that he voted to leave early and not to vote against extending the Bush tax cuts.  This means that in January the biggest tax increase in history will take effect.

Thirty-nine House Democrats voted against adjournment after Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) urged opposition to the motion in a floor speech that said it would be irresponsible for Congress to leave without providing certainty on the tax issue. Dozens of Democrats in tough races voted against adjourning.
"Vote no on this adjournment resolution. Give Congress a chance to vote on extending tax rates," Boehner said.
Boehner's floor speech turned the vote on adjournment into a referendum on the tax cuts, which has divided Democrats for months. President Obama wants to extend tax cuts for families making less than $250,000, while allowing taxes to rise on income above that threshold. Many centrist Democrats have joined Republicans in arguing for extending all of the tax cuts. Costello was not one of them as he is an Obama-Pelosi tax and spend liberal.

"The incumbent has never met a tax he didn't vote for" said Teri Newman, the Republican nominee for the 12th district seat "that's why the National Taxpayer's Union rates him as a "big spender" when it comes to fiscal irresponsibility" she continued.
Mrs. Newman is a strict fiscal conservative who favors tax cuts and a huge reduction in government spending.  Her strong views on repealing health care, deporting illegal aliens and cutting government spending are resonating through the district  and causing the incumbent to fight for his political life as residents weary of him finally have someone else to support.
"We are polling in a dead heat in a district where I wasn't supposed to have a chance and gaining every day" said Mrs. Newman  "his attack mailout told the district that he has an opponent and that he's afraid of me." she continued "and for him to vote to raise taxes for middle America shows what an arrogant so and so he is." she concluded.
The election is November 2, 2010.
