Tax Relief

One of the best ways to promote economic growth and preserve the American and New Mexican way of life is to keep taxes low for working families. That's why Harry supported the tax cuts for 95 percent of Americans in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Tax relief should be for everyone, not just the richest people. Harry believes the tax cuts contained in the stimulus package should be a down payment on a new tax plan that works for working and middle class Americans - a simple, easy to understand plan, with understandable forms, that cuts taxes for American workers and their families.

Another way to keep taxes low is by keeping government spending in control. Not only did Harry oppose the $700 billion bank bailout from the beginning, but once he got to Congress he proudly split with his party's leadership to vote AGAINST the bailout - and he did it twice. Although these are tough times that require the government to help create jobs and keep our economy from falling even further, Harry believes that we must chart a path toward fiscal sanity.
