Attention Gerry Connolly!


Attention Gerry Connolly, and any other Democrat who thinks it’s a smart idea to extend the Bush tax cuts for people making over $250,000 a year, even as the national debt piles up.

A majority of Americans favor letting the tax cuts enacted during the Bush administration expire for the wealthy. While 37% support keeping the tax cuts for all Americans, 44% want them extended only for those making less than $250,000 and 15% think they should expire for all taxpayers.

That’s right, not only were the Bush tax cuts a horrible idea in the first place (which, in fairness, Connolly seems to acknowledge), and not only were they designed to expire at the end of 2010 (it was the Republicans, by the way, who designed the legislation that way), but only 37% of Americans want to “keep the tax cuts in place for all taxpayers.” Is this a no-brainer or what?

There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
