RGA slams Michaud over 99 tax hike votes

on

Michaud Pay GapThe Republican Governors Association slammed Democrat U.S. Rep Michael Michaud on Tuesday – Tax Day – for voting more than 99 times to increase taxes or impose new ones while serving in congressman for Maine’s 2nd Congressional District.

“There are some, like Congressman Mike Michaud, who inexplicably believe that if they take more and more money from hard working families and job creators, somehow the economy will be better off because the government gets bigger,” Gail Gitcho, RGA communications director, said in a press release. “Then there are some, like Governor Paul LePage, who believe the more money Mainers have in their pocket, the more the economy will prosper as small businesses will have the means to employ more people.”

“In Congress, Michaud has voted at least 99 times in favor of higher taxes,” she said.

According to the RGA, here are 99 times Michaud voted in favor of higher taxes:
