Little: Congressional Inaction On Tax Rates Is Irresponsible
For Congress to recess without extending the current tax rates or completing a budget is irresponsible behavior. Frank Pallone is a part of that problem. Jan 1 will bring the biggest tax hike in history because Congress went home to campaign.

LITTLE: CONGRESSIONAL INACTION ON TAX RATES IS IRRESPONSIBLE
(HIGHLANDS, September 28) - Republican congressional challenger Anna Little - responding to further news reports indicating that Congress will likely recess without first holding a vote on whether or not to extend the current tax rates - today urged voters in New Jersey's 6th Congressional District to hold her opponent, 22-year liberal incumbent Frank Pallone, accountable.
"Congress is being run by an irresponsible majority right now," said Little. "There's just no other way to say it. And Frank Pallone is a huge part of the problem.
"This year, for the first time since the Budget Act was passed in 1974, Congress didn't even pass a budget," continued Little. "And now, it appears the liberals who run the Congress are planning to go home to campaign before they pass a bill to extend the current tax rates."
"If they don't pass a bill to extend the current tax rates, New Year's Day is going to bring with it the biggest tax hike in American history - all because the liberals who run the Congress are more concerned with keeping their own jobs than they are with helping their constituents create jobs for themselves and their communities."
"I cannot think of anything that would be more irresponsible,"
"The ability to hold our elected leaders accountable with regularly scheduled elections is one of the hallmarks of American democracy," Little continued. "But that only works if our elected leaders actually vote BEFORE the elections on crucial issues. By waiting until after the election to engage in significant legislative action, our elected leaders are in essence hiding from the public. That's just wrong, and it's just one more reason we need to change Washington."
"But the simple fact is, you cannot change Washington without changing the people in Washington."
"The good news is, there's an election in 35 days. And then the people will have a chance to make their voice heard!"
