Louisiana Democrats Taunt David Vitter On Tax Cuts For Rich
Written by  {ga=staffwriters} // Thursday, 16 September 2010 16:36 //

The Louisiana Democratic Party has created yet another smart web ad hitting David Vitter for some comments he made recently to an audience in small-town Crowley, Louisiana.  He basically told them that they were all wealthy - and said it in such a way as to indicate his belief that the average Louisiana resident is wealthy as well.  The video sends a message to the Senator that, unlike folks he usually hangs out with, the average Louisiana resident makes only $43,000 a year.

This talk was part of Vitter's defense of the George Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans - the very small group making more than $250,000 annually.  Congress has to decide this fall whether to let those tax cuts expire or to extend them.  Read more in these articles from the Christian Science Monitor and the Washington Post.

Finally, watch the video from DoingAVitter.com for yourself and then leave a comment with your thoughts on this question -- Is David Vitter really this out of touch with everyday folks in Louisiana?
