Latham Votes Against Middle Class Tax Cuts... Again

Tom Latham says he wants to help cut taxes, let people keep more of their money, and is against the death tax.

However, last week Latham voted against Barack Obama's budget that will cut taxes for middle class families, voted against eliminating the death tax for nearly every American, and earlier this year he voted against the largest tax cut in history.

• Cuts taxes for middle income families by $1.5 trillion and extends the 2001 and 2003 income tax cuts for taxpayers making less than $250,000 a year.

• Protects millions of middle-class families who would otherwise be hit by the AMT in 2010.

• Provides tax relief for small businesses.

• Permanently extends estate tax relief to ensure that 99.7 percent of estates in America never pay a dime of estate taxes.

Earlier this year, Representative Tom Latham opposed the Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which cuts taxes for 95 percent of the American people, representing the largest middle class tax cut in history.

So what gives Rep. Latham? Do you want to cut taxes and let people keep more of their own money or do you want to think our economic situation is just fine and you want to continue the status quo?
