Statement as submitted by Shelley Adler, Candidate for House of Representatives:
It is clear that Rep. Jon Runyan is siding with millionaires, billionaires and the powerful special interests in Washington at the expense of middle class families struggling to make ends meet.
Rep. Runyan voted to triple tax breaks for the "average millionaire" and they would receive an extra quarter-million dollars a year. Where is the tax break for middle class families?
It is bad enough that he provided Big Oil with 40 billion dollars in taxpayer-funded subsidies, but to spend trillions of dollars to give the wealthiest Americans massive tax breaks when instead middle class families could have been provided much needed relief is just wrong.
The middle class needs relief and Rep. Runyan has proven that he is not on their side.
