Following the withdrawal of Caroline Kennedy for the Clinton Senate seat, leading reports say New York Governor David Paterson will choose Kristen Gillibrand tomorrow as New York’s next senator.
Reports say leading state Democratic officials all want Kristen Gillibrand. While no confirmation, Kristen Gillibrand is expected to be the name announced tomorrow by the Governor.
This is what Kristen says about tax cuts:
Working for Middle Class Tax Cuts I believe in creating opportunities for our middle-class families to thrive. To do that we need to bring significant tax relief to Upstate New York. Every year, too much of your hard earned money goes to Washington, and I am committed to easing the tax burden for your family.
I strongly advocate permanently extending the 2001 and 2003 middle class tax cuts. In March of 2007, Congress passed the 2008 budget resolution, which places a strong emphasis on extending these tax cuts, including marriage penalty relief, the child tax credit, estate tax reform, the research and development tax credit, and the deduction for state and local sales taxes.
In Congress I have been working to promote middle-class opportunity with targeted middle-class tax cuts. You can learn more below:
Pass the Biggest Middle-Class Tax Cut in History
The Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) currently penalizes middle-class Americans for raising a family, buying a home and paying their taxes. In 2008, Representative Gillibrand voted to shield 25 million American households, including 70,000 in NY-20, from paying the AMT. Middle class households, small business owners and farmers should never have to pay the tax, and Representative Gillibrand is working in Congress to ensure that there is permanent fix in the tax code.
Give Working Families a Tax Cut (The Family Care Act HR 1871)
In order to pay the bills, approximately two thirds of households have both parents working. Gillibrand’s Family Care Act will help parents balance their careers and allow their children to be cared for in a safe and enriching environment. As a mother of a four year old son in day care herself, Congresswoman Gillibrand understands the difficulty of balancing work and family.
