Boyda Reiterates Support for Middle-Class Tax Cuts

Congresswoman Nancy Boyda has, on numerous occasions, voiced loudly support for cutting taxes on the middle class, making that same point again in an article in the Lawrence Journal-World published today.

U.S. Rep. Nancy Boyda, Kan., was in Topeka on Monday, and said she supported making permanent the tax cuts that helped the middle class.

But, she said, making permanent those tax cuts for the wealthy would have to depend on how the economy is doing.

“We can’t go around invading other countries either that aren’t a threat to us and expect to be able to keep all of these tax cuts in place,” Boyda said. She said the federal government has to be able to pay for national security without charging the cost to the next generation.

Boyda is, of course, correct in her assessment of the Bush-sponsored tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. The present administration has spiked the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan off to the next generation, while, at the same time, slashing taxes- unfortunately in such a way the very wealthiest Americans were the ones who received the majority of the benefit.

For the average Kansan, Boyda's message is the right one: We've got to limit tax liability for the people who need it- the middle class.

boyda's right- give the cuts to people who deserve them- not the billionaires.

um...ok

the vast majority of all the wealth in this country is held by the top few richest people. they aren't thousands in number, but they've got more money than all of the people in the kansas 2nd combined.

the people of the kansas 2nd are the ones that need tax breaks- not the billionaires (or millionaires, for that matter).

what is wrong with you? the VAST majority of people in the KS-02 are regular middle class people. Those few people in the district that are millionaires...good for them! they can afford to pay more in taxes.
