DCCC: Fincher Helping Tea Party in ‘Mugging the Middle Class’

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is targeting Republican U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher with robo-calls criticizing him for a vote against the Senate-passed bill extending a payroll tax reduction.
Here’s text of the call, as reported by Elizabeth Bewley:
“Something remarkable happened this weekend – Democrats and Republicans in the Senate worked together to stop a $1,000 payroll tax hike on 160 million middle-class families.
“Sounds too good to be true? It is, if Representative Steve Fincher doesn’t do the right thing and support it.
“Thirty-nine Republicans in the Senate voted for a middle-class tax-cut compromise, but Representative Fincher is ready to scrap it and sock the middle class with a tax hike on Jan. 1. That will cost Americans money when they can least afford it.
“The tea party is mugging the middle class with a tax increase because they don’t think millionaires and corporations should pay their fair share. Call (731) 423-4848 and tell Representative Fincher to stand with us, not the Tea Party, and support the $1,000 payroll tax-cut compromise before it’s too late.”
