PA GOP Chairman Gleason Releases Statement On Vice President Biden’s “Yes We Do” Want To Raise Taxes Comments

Harrisburg — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason issued the following statement regarding Vice President Biden’s comments which highlighted his and President Obama’s plan to raise taxes by a trillion dollars:

“Championing a trillion dollar tax increase is just another reason that Pennsylvania voters are rejecting President Obama’s handling of the national economy. Put Vice President’s comments today along with Team Obama’s ‘class warfare’ strategy that continues to turn off Pennsylvania voters looking for leadership to improve the economy for all Americans,” Chairman Rob Gleason said.

“It is time for candidates like Bob Casey and Mark Critz to come forward and let Pennsylvania voters know if they are publicly supporting another one of President Obama’s job killing policies.”

Today, Biden Said “Yes We Do” Want To Raise Taxes By A Trillion Dollars. BIDEN: “On top of the trillions of dollars of spending that we have already cut, we’re gonna ask — yes — we’re gonna ask the wealthy to pay more. My heart breaks, come on man. You know the phrase they always use? Obama and Biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. Guess what? Yes we do in one regard. We want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn’t have to bear the burden of all that money going to the super wealthy. That’s not a tax raise, that’s called fairness where I come from.” (Vice President Joe Biden, Remarks At A Campaign Event, Council Bluffs, IA, 10/4/12)
