Vito Fossella votes for middle class families to pay more taxes

First Fossella cries and bemoans Democrats for not passing a patch to the AMT only to vote against it two days later. It passed by the way, thanks to the Democrats he claimed were "dragging their feet."

Monday, December 10, via the Advance;

Fossella (R-Staten Island/Brooklyn) issued a release today blasting House Democrats who are "dragging their feet" when it comes to passing the patch to the alternative minimum tax (AMT). Fossella cites that as a result of their not passing the patch, 23 million middle-class families will have to pay as much as $2,000 more in taxes next year and the 50 million Americans that are owed about $75 billion will have to wait an extra 10 weeks for their returns due to the delay.

Wednesday, December 12;
Rep. Vito Fossella voted AGAINST passing the AMT patch. This must mean that Vito Fossella wanted 23 million middle-class families to pay $2,000 more in taxes and wanted to delay tax returns for another ten weeks for 500 million Americans.
