Rob Eno: A Vote for Warren is a Vote for More Taxes

Monday, November 05, 2012

 

Voters in Central Massachusetts have a real choice tomorrow.

They can vote for a party line Democrat progressive that stands for higher taxes and more government control of our lives, or a true independent voice. An independent who believes in the principles of the free market. Voters can vote for Elizabeth Warren, the partisan ideologue or Scott Brown, who has represented the people of Massachusetts above all else.

Elizabeth Warren has proposed or agreed with policies that will raise taxes by over $3.4 trillion. Her first impulse is to raise taxes, not to cut the spending addiction of Washington. Just what taxes has Warren agreed to or proposed?

She’s proposed getting rid of the cap on payroll taxes. This will raise Social Security taxes on middle class people making over the cap amount by $1 trillion. This will stifle job creation. She also would raise taxes by $46.7 billion through enacting the “Buffett Rule."

She supports Obamacare, which raised taxes on everyday Americans by $675 billion. In addition, this law limits our choices. She would reinstitute the death tax, which would stop small businesses from being passed down from generation to generation.

Over and over again, Massachusetts voters have voted by referendum for lower taxes. We are a state that believes in fiscal restraint. Why would we send someone to the Senate who wants to raise our taxes to pay for a bloated federal bureaucracy?

Scott Brown has often gone against the wishes of his own party. His vote for Elizabeth Warren’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was especially hard for conservatives like myself to take. But at the end of the day, Scott believes that it is free market and free individuals that drive this economy, not central planning.

Tomorrow, the voters of Central Massachusetts face a clear choice for U.S. Senate. A true moderate who believes that people, not government, create jobs or someone that even a Democratic-leaning think tank has called an enemy of the free market. Voters have a choice, they should choose Scott Brown.

Rob & Chris - Hey will you guys ever get a grip on the truth? Conservative extremists should go away and never return.

Ed, great comeback! You really have a gift for scathing responses. As usual, it's one lacking any substance at all. I give you credit for being consistent.
