Congressman Flake Votes for a Tax Hike and Against American Jobs

Phoenix, Arizona – Congressman Flake voted Tuesday to increase taxes by an average of $1000 a year for all American working families and voted against a new oil pipeline project that would create more than 20,000 new jobs. The Congressman voted against H.R. 3630, which will extend the payroll tax holiday and allow for the Keystone XL Pipeline to be constructed.

“Congressman Flake has been in Washington so long that he doesn’t understand Arizonans need lower, not higher taxes and America needs jobs,” said Wil Cardon, candidate for U.S. Senate. “Career politicians like Congressman Flake just don’t get it.

“The Congressman’s vote to deny working Arizonans more take home pay will continue to hurt working families in this bad economy. Additionally, Congressman Flake’s vote against creating 20,000 new jobs is unconscionable. But what can you expect from a politician who has never spent a day in the private sector, nor ever created a single job.

“In the Senate, I will fight every day to grow our economy by cutting taxes, reducing spending and promoting pro-growth policies that help businesses create jobs. That’s why I am running for the U.S. Senate.”

Last week, Cardon called for comprehensive pro-growth tax reform to fix the country’s dire economic situation and create a stable environment for job creators.

    (….Crickets chirping….)

  2. Yep. It only takes one lie to allow me to discount the entire Cardon team. Flake did work in the private sector. Duh. And it is not believable is that he would: “increase taxes by an average of $1000 a year for all American working families.”

    I’m sorry about the idiots who published this and that the people being paid for putting words in Cardon’s mouth have it so wrong.

    Don’t get me wrong, Flake has strengths and weaknesses. From Cardon, I see only weakness.

    • What a bunch of morons! This so called “tax” cut is YOUR money that YOU contribute to YOUR SS fund! Social Security is going broke as it is. Now minus $100 Billion Dollars!

      Tell me genius, where is the $100 Billion going to come from?? Your kids!?

      I know, to HELL with the kids!

  3. Flakes mentor is McCain, Cardon worked for McCain, Cardon worked for Flake, just more of the same.

  4. Flakes votes with the Democrats, what a RINO!

  5. I agree with p2012p. Flake is a huge RINO! If Flake doesn’t like his own record, which Cardon pointed out, than he should vote to represent his state and not the Washington lobbyist he tries to appease.

  6. Now Flake represents Washington lobbyists? Haha. That’s great. Flake is the anti-lobbyist candidate.

    Name one tax break or pork project Flake has brought home for a lobbying firm, or on behalf of a client of a lobbying firm.

    I don’t know the answer to this question, I’m just curious if you actually thought through what you typed.
