ED CASE’S RECORD OF TAX INCREASES—PART 1

 

From Hawaii Republican Party

Democrat congressional candidate Ed Case is attempting to portray himself as someone who is fiscally responsible.  A look at his record, however, uncovers the truth: While in Congress, Ed Case was a reliable vote for imposing higher taxes on middle-class families and small businesses. Here’s the first in a series of releases highlighting Case’s fiscal irresponsibility:

In 2004, Case voted to allow a tax increase for the middle class. He voted with the vast minority against a bipartisan bill that would have extended for one year the current income exemptions from the alternative minimum tax. (House Roll Call 144, 05/05/04)

“As voters decide who they want representing them in Washington, it’s important to study the candidate’s actions not their campaign rhetoric.  Ed Case says he will exercise fiscal restraint and highlights his membership as a ‘Blue Dog Democrat,’ but his Congressional votes clearly indicate he’s just another Democrat that supports increased taxes for Hawai'i.  In contrast, Charles Djou has a message of fiscal accountability and pledges to lower taxes on Hawai'i’s families and small businesses.  He can walk to the walk too; he has never voted for a tax increase,” said Jonah Ka'auwai, Chairman, Hawai'i Republican Party.

In 2004, Case did not support a bill that would have lowered the total taxes paid by middle-class families with children and military personnel with children.  He voted against extending a $1,000 per child tax credit given to families with children and against allowing military personnel to include combat pay in their gross earning in order to calculate eligibility for the child tax credit. (House Roll Call 209, 05/20/04)

“Just in time for tax day, we’ve already reached fifteen examples of Ed Case's record on taxes.  Though he claims to be a fiscal conservative, Ed Case's Congressional record proves the contrary.  The only candidate that has consistently fought against higher taxes for the people of Hawaii is Charles Djou.  For those of you speaking out today against government waste, overspending and pending tax hikes, Charles is on your side," said Erin Kealoha, Communications Director, Hawaii Republican Party.
