Taxachusetts: MA Dem can’t Remember Opposing a Tax Hike

Ed Markey

Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA), who has served in Congress for 27 years and is a candidate in the special election for the Senate in Massachusetts, cannot recall a time when he’s opposed a tax increase.

During a recent campaign stop, he was asked if there was an instance he’s opposed Democratic leadership on taxes. Markey sheepishly replied, “Well, I would review my record and I will get back to you on that.”


Markey leads his Republican opponent, Gabriel Gomez, by an average of 10 points, according to Real Clear Politics. He holds a lifetime score of 8% from FreedomWorks and 15% from the Club for Growth. If all of the legislation Markey proposed in the 112th Congress were enacted, federal spending would have increased by $81 billion.

Needless to say, Markey is no friend to the taxpayer.
