Eight Democrats Who Disagree With Obama On Raising Taxes On Those Making More Than $250,000
President Obama called for extending the Bush tax cuts today only for middle class Americans, defined as those making under $250,000. But several prominent Democrats have voiced disagreement with the President’s long held postion in the past.
5. Senator Ben Nelson: “My druthers is to extend the tax cuts for everybody. What I could support is extending the tax cuts for everybody earning under a million dollars a year if it has to come to that.”
7. Utah Rep. Jim Matheson: “I recognize $250,000 is a lot of money for an individual to make for an individual. But we’re also talking about businesses. That’s not a lot of money for small businesses.”
