Robin Carnahan on Tax Reform

 


Extend Bush tax cuts for all recipients, including wealthy

Breaking from the president and the majority of her party, Robin Carnahan, the Democratic Senate candidate in Missouri, announced that she supports extending the Bush tax cuts for all recipients, including the wealthy. Carnahan stressed that "now [was] not the time to raise taxes" for members of any income class. A Carnahan campaign aide confirmed the Secretary of State's position to the Huffington Post.

In announcing her support for a full extension of the Bush tax cuts--which are set to expire thi year--Carnahan creates conspicuous distance between herself and many of the national Democrats she's hoping to join. President Obama, for one, has pushed for an extension of the cuts for those making below $200,000. Individuals earning more than that or families in an income bracket above $250,000 would see their tax rates revert to previous levels under the president's plan. With some exceptions, Democrats argue that the budget would take a major blow if the tax cuts for the wealthy are extended.
