Americans United for Change Goes After GOP on Payroll Tax Cuts
National Journal - December 02, 2011
Americans United for Change has made a new web video that accuses Republicans willing to let the payroll tax cut expire of raising taxes on middle class Americans as they protect the wealthiest Americans.
The video mixes clips of Republicans vowing not to raise taxes on anyone with narration that says letting the payroll tax cut expire is equivalent to raising taxes on 160 million middle class Americans.
"Congressional Republicans are threatening to raise payroll taxes on middle class Americans by $1,000 a year," the narrator says. "Why? Because they're refusing to make millionaires pay their fair share as part of a payroll tax package. To Republicans, it's just fine to raise your taxes as long as millionaires don't have to pay a penny more."
