NEW DSCC AD: In Washington, Kelly Ayotte’s Not Working For New Hampshire

The DSCC released a new ad highlighting how Senator Kelly Ayotte puts outside special interests ahead of hard-working New Hampshire families. She might say one thing in New Hampshire, but in Washington, Ayotte has voted to protect tax breaks for big oil companies and millionaires, while opposing legislation to let Granite Staters refinance their student loans. The DSCC previously launched http://ayottefacts.com/ so New Hampshire voters can learn how Ayotte repeatedly puts her corporate special interest backers ahead of Granite Staters.

 

The ad, “Know” can be viewed HERE.

 

“Regardless of whatever political gymnastics she attempts next, Senator Kelly Ayotte’s record in Washington speaks for itself – letting big oil companies get big tax breaks while average people pay more for student loans,” said Sadie Weiner, DSCC Communications Director. “Ayotte consistently puts her corporate special interest backers ahead of hardworking New Hampshire families, and Granite Staters deserve better. In the Senate, Governor Maggie Hassan will fight to put New Hampshire first no matter what.”

AYOTTE VOTED TO PROTECT TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN SPECIAL TAX BREAKS FOR OIL & GAS COMPANIES

 

2011: Ayotte Voted Against A Bill That Would Have Closed $21 Billion In Tax Loopholes For Oil Companies With Annual Receipts Of More Than $1 Billion. On May 17, 2011, Ayotte voted against: “a Reid, D-Nev., motion to proceed to consideration of the bill that would repeal various tax provisions for oil companies that have gross annual receipts of more than $1 billion and that produce an average 500,000 barrels or more each day.” The motion was rejected 52-48. [CQ, 5/17/11; S. 940, Vote 72, 5/17/11]

 

2012: Ayotte Voted Against Closing $24 Billion In Tax Loopholes For Large Oil And Gas Companies.  On March 29, 2012, Ayotte voted against: “a motion to invoke cloture (thus limiting debate) on the bill that would roll back certain tax preferences for large oil and gas companies. The bill would use revenue generated from eliminating certain oil and gas tax incentives to pay for an extension of some renewable-energy tax credits and incentives.” The motion was rejected 51-47. [CQ, 3/29/12; S. 2204, Vote 63, 3/29/12]

 

  • Senate Republicans Blocked Bill To Strip $24 Billion In Tax Subsidies From The Country’s Largest Oil Companies.” “Senate Republicans, including Scott Brown of Massachusetts, today foiled President Obama’s plan to strip $24 billion in tax subsidies from the country’s largest oil companies, potentially fueling an election-year issue among voters disgruntled by escalating gas prices.” [Boston Globe, 3/29/12]

AYOTTE VOTED FOR RYAN BUDGET THAT CONTAINED MASSIVE TAX BREAKS FOR THE WEALTHY WHILE 95% OF TAXPAYERS WOULD SEE NO BENEFIT

 

Ayotte Voted For FY 2012 Ryan Budget. In May 2011, Ayotte voted for a: “Reid, D-Nev., motion to proceed to the concurrent resolution that would allow $2.859 trillion in new budget authority for fiscal 2012.” The motion failed 40-57. [CQ, 5/25/11; H.Con.Res. 34, Vote 77, 5/25/11]

 

  • CBPP: Ryan Budget Proposal To Cut Top Income Tax Rate Would “Primarily Benefit Households With The Highest Incomes” And “95 Percent Of Americans Would Have Received No Benefit At All.” “Reducing the top income tax rate to 25 percent would primarily benefit households with the highest incomes. For example, a family with two children and an income of $1 million (of which we assumed $850,000 comes from earnings) would receive an annual tax cut of $51,000 from lowering the top rate to 25 percent, which would be in addition to the $64,000 the family would get from extending all of the Bush tax cuts. And family with an income of $10 million (and $8.5 million in earnings) would receive a tax cut of $730,000 a year from the reduction in the top rate. In contrast, 95 percent of Americans would receive no benefit at all from lowering the top rate to 25 percent, because they would already be in the 25 percent tax bracket or a lower bracket (assuming that the Bush tax cuts were extended, as the House budget envisions).” [Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, 5/26/11]

 

  • Wealthy Would See Massive Tax Cuts Under Plan, With Families Making Millions Of Dollars Receiving Five And Six-Figure Tax Cuts.  “The tax proposals in the budget that the House approved on April 15 place a top priority on cutting  taxes for high-income people, while doing nothing to reduce budget deficits, themselves. […]The costliest of the new tax cuts in the House budget would shrink the top individual tax rate to 25 percent, its lowest level since before the New Deal. […] Reducing the top income tax rate to 25 percent would primarily benefit households with the highest incomes. For example, a family with two children and an income of $1 million (of which we assumed $850,000 comes from earnings) would receive an annual tax cut of $51,000 from lowering the top rate to 25 percent, which would be in addition to the $64,000 the family would get from extending all of the Bush tax cuts. And family with an income of $10 million (and $8.5 million in earnings) would receive a tax cut of $730,000 a year from the reduction in the top rate.” [Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, 5/26/11]

 

  • Tax Policy Center’s Roberton Williams: Ryan Plan “Would Almost Certainly Shift More Of The Tax Burden To Low- And Middle-Income Families.” In an April 2011 post for Tax Policy Center’s TaxVox, Roberton Williams wrote: “[…] the House budget resolution would almost certainly shift more of the tax burden to low- and middle-income households and yield a less progressive tax system. Combining that with deep spending cuts doesn’t look like an equitable sharing of the costs of bringing the budget deficit under control.” [Tax Policy Center, TaxVox, Roberton Williams, 4/18/11]
