Should Bush Tax Cuts Be Extended?

To The Editor:

Recently there have been a number of questions as to whether or not to extend the Bush tax cuts.

While many believe that allowing the tax cuts to expire will raise more revenue for the government and aid our country into economic recovery, this simply won’t be the case.

Increasing the tax burden on the middle class and the wealthy will stunt the economic recovery that we need in America.

Cutting taxes on small business and decreasing the capital gains tax would provide incentive for businesses to invest and thereby strengthen our nation’s economy.

Most Republicans and even some Democrats are in agreement on these facts. However, Joe Sestak and others of his persuasion still desire to raise taxes to near unprecedented heights.

For this reason it is imperative that we elect fiscally responsible candidates in November and stay clear of destructive ideologies that would prevent Pennsylvanians from returning to a flourishing economy.

Pat Toomey has the right plan for Pennsylvania and the United States of America.

The U.S. Senate needs Pat Toomey, and he will have my full support on November 2.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
