Connecticut 3rd District Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro said she voted against the bill, rescuing the nation from the “Fiscal Cliff,” because the rich were not taxed enough. “This legislation makes permanent a tax structure that benefits the wealthy- it provides permanent tax rates to the wealthy while only providing temporary tax credits to working and middle class families.”
DeLauro is a multi-millionaire through her husband Stanley Greenberg’s polling firm, Greenberg-Quinlan-Rosner. There is nothing stopping her or any other millionaire or billionaire upset that the increased tax rate wasn’t increased enough, from writing a check to the U.S. Treasury Department. I am sure the government would be appreciative of the gesture, in an effort to retire a $16 trillion and growing debt.
