For Ohio’s 15th Congressional District, it’s time to choose

Washington, D.C.- Ohio’a 15th District Congressional race could cost taxpayers $1,445 a year, the amount they risk losing unless lawmakers make tax relief permanent.  And in this race the candidates-Rep. Deborah Pryce (R) and Mary Jo Kilroy (D) make the option very clear.

“Mary Jo Kilroy (D) has made it plain that she opposed the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act, even claiming that Republican tax cuts do little for middle class American families,” said Grover Norquist President of Americans for Tax Reform.  “But Kilroy has it wrong.  115 million taxpayers face an average increase of $1,716 more per year in taxes without permanent tax relief.”

Certain taxpayers will see an even greater increase if Kilroy has her way.  If you are a married couple you could pay an additional $2,726 more in taxes each year.  And ‘look out seniors,’.  17 million of you will see an increase of $2,034.  That’s not to mention the 26 million small business owners who will see a $3,637 increase.

In Ohio, the average taxpayer will fork over an additional $1,625 a year in taxes.  $1,625 can buy a lot, it’s a vacation for a family of four, a top of the line computer to send to college with your oldest child, the monthly mortgage on a new family home, and almost as much as a husband and wife will spend on childcare in one year.

For taxpayers in Ohio, Mary Jo Kilroy is a threat.  Unlike Rep. Deborah Pryce, who voted for the 2003 Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act (JGTRRA) which resulted in more than 49,000 new jobs in Ohio alone by providing tax relief to every American.

“If you are a married couple, single mom, senior, small business owner, or any other taxpayer, you will see an increase in your taxes without permanent tax relief,” continued Norquist. “No one is exempt from a potential Kilroy tax cut repeal.”
