86. Which of my heroes is asking for a tax increase on the wealthy ?
Senator John Kerry - in the very speech I gave you - which you clearly did not listen to.

He spoke of - eliminating tax loopholes that cause many corporations to pay no taxes - talking of companies that have their own pages in the tax code, he spoke of the extension of the tax cut (in this speech and at a Boston Head start appearance last week).

As to proposals to build jobs, Kerry is the lead sponsor on the infrastructure bank legislation that is the key to Obama's call for investing in the US - creating jobs and expanding the economy.

In fact, here are three pieces of legislation - all to grow jobs - that Kerry introduced in teh last few weeks.
- the infrastructure bill (with Hutchinson)
- the START- UP VISA bill (with Lugar)
- the BEER Act (with Crapo and 20 other Senators)
- the broadband expansion and use of white spaces in spectrum (with Snowe)

Furthermore, I am not playing a game. I am trying to follow the efforts being made to help the economy. Note that all of the legislation indicated have Republican sponsors.

Now, this is true not just of Kerry, but he is the one I have the links for.
