Sherry Huber is wrong

I am writing in response to Sherry Huber’s OpEd in the BDN endorsing Barack Obama. Huber is absolutely wrong when she says Obama has the vision to lead our country in the right direction when it comes to the economy and energy. Looking strictly at the facts, it is clear Obama does not have what it takes to make our country less dependent on foreign oil and he won’t generate tax breaks for the middle class. John McCain has what it takes.

Obama is not for change. Under an Obama administration, we can expect tax hikes and more bureaucracy in Washington. His record speaks for itself. In the short time he’s been in the Senate, Obama has voted for tax increases an astounding 94 times. Obama and Joe Biden speak over and over again about how they will help the middle class, but Obama even voted to raise taxes on Americans making as little as $42,000 a year. So Ms. Huber is wrong when she claims we can expect middle-class tax cuts from Obama. With a record like that it is doubtful anyone can expect any tax relief.

John McCain’s economic policies embrace small-business owners, entrepreneurs and every hardworking American. I know John McCain has my best interests in mind when he makes economic policies.
