McNerney Votes for Tax Increases Yet Again (AMT)

From the NRCC:

Washington- Rep. Jerry McNerney (CA-11) last night proved once again his commitment to raising taxes, even at the expense of hard-working Americans. Instead of voting for a clean Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) patch without tax increases that actually has a chance of being signed into law, McNerney instead voted for burdening tax increases that will negatively impact the competitiveness of U.S. businesses and the American economy (House Roll Call 1153).

McNerney voted to kill an AMT patch free of tax increases, which passed overwhelmingly in the Senate last week (House Roll Call 1152). McNerney could have broken with his leadership to ensure 20 million middle-class Americans would not get hit by an unnecessary tax increase. Instead, McNerney and the Democrats continue to block this legislation, risking that American families will face, on average, a $2,000 tax increase.

"While McNerney and the Democrats try to rush out of town with nothing to show except for a laundry list of failed accomplishments and broken promises, middle-class Americans will spend their holiday season worrying about how they will pay for even more of the Democrats' tax increases," said NRCC Communications Director Jessica Boulanger. "Jerry McNerney has shirked his responsibility to do the people’s business in Washington, and his constituents in California will certainly register their discontent on Election Day."

When will Jerry McNerney put the hard-working middle-class citizens of California above his Democrat leaders in Washington?
