Hypocrisy, Bernie Sanders voted NO to limiting Subsidies to rich Farmers;  but voted YES to stop Tax Relief for Middle and Working Class Families


It was in 2011 that Bernie Sanders voted YES to let President Obama’s Tax Relief for “middle and working class” families to expire; but it was in 2013 Senator Bernie Sanders voted NO against an amendment that would limit millionaire farmers getting subsidies.

The Senate adopted the Amendment.  Those that supported the bill believed that tax-payers shouldn’t have to pay for farmers making over $750,000. They can afford their own insurance. They thought tax-payers money could be better used for other things rather than giving it away to those who do not need it.  In a 9 page pdf  file I have included information regarding those in favor of limiting tax subsidies from those making over $750,000.

Just to give you how hypocritical Senator Sanders vote was, you could look at the fact he voted against a 2% tax reduction on families.

From Whitehouse.gov

Tax Relief for Middle-Class Families and Small Businesses

Tax Relief for Middle-Class Families

President Obama has cut taxes for middle class families, and under this Administration, federal taxes for middle class families have been close to their lowest levels in decades.

A typical middle class family received a tax cut of $3,600 over President Obama’s first term – more if they were putting a child through college.

• President Obama’s Making Work Pay credit provided 95 percent of working families a tax cut of $400 per person or $800 per couple in 2009 and 2010.

• The President’s payroll tax cut provided 160 million workers a 2 percent reduction in payroll taxes, cutting taxes for a typical family earning $50,000 a year by $1,000 — or $40 per paycheck — in 2011 and 2012.

• Families putting a child through college can receive as much as $10,000 of help over four years from the President’s American Opportunity Tax Credit, the equivalent of nearly a 30 percent discount on tuition at a typical state university. For many families, the American Opportunity Tax Credit provides thousands of dollars more help with college expenses than they could have received from pre‐existing tax credits.

At the end of the day Bernie Sanders voted against the middle class and voted to allow rich farmers to keep subsidies.
