– Taxin’ Tedra Cobb’s WFP Now Demanding Candidates “Stop Defending Taxpayers”
Glens Falls: A bombshell report byPoliticotoday forced an immediate question for Democrat and 2018 Working Families Party nominee, Tedra Cobb, after the publication exposed a new questionnaire from New York’s Working Families Party demanding that candidates avoid “talking about taxpayers and taxes.”
From today’s Politico on Tedra Cobb’s Working Families Party questionnaire:
“In essence, the party asks would-be candidates if they are willing to stop talking about taxpayers and taxes.”
“’Messages that frame ‘taxpayers’ as an aggrieved or marginalized group promotes an anti-tax, anti-government worldview that is often used to justify disinvestment and austerity policies,’ the question reads, according to a copy of the document obtained by POLITICO.
“’Taxpayer’ has also become a raciallycoded term designed to appeal to white individuals and reinforce the misconception that they are paying taxes to support the needs of people (often implied to be non-white) who don’t pay taxes.Will you avoid messaging that centers ‘taxpayers’ or ‘tax burdens’ and instead talk about ‘public funding’ and the public as a whole?”
Congresswoman Elise Stefanik Tweet Today:
“This makes sense for Tax, Tax, Tax, #TaxinTedra!
- “In 2018, the WFP helped change the political landscape in the state by championing upstart leftist candidates…”
- “The Working Families Party has successfully moved Katie Wilson off the ballot in the 21st Congressional District and replaced her with Democratic candidate Tedra L. Cobb.”
