Pat Toomey campaign — Specter Breaks Tax Pledge, Provides 60th Vote for Gov-Run Health Care

I hadn’t planned on emailing you today, in the thick of the holiday season, but I really think you should know about the deceptive, late night vote that Senator Specter cast last night.

Sen. Arlen Specter provided the crucial 60th vote to advance the senate Democrats’ massive government-run health care bill.

The implications of this vote are especially damaging to Pennsylvania families. This bill delivers huge tax increases, massive cuts to Medicare, taxpayer-funded abortions and higher premiums for families, seniors and small businesses in Pennsylvania.

We cannot afford the endless deceptions of Arlen Specter. We need a real leader representing us in the U.S. Senate. As 2009 comes to a close, please consider helping our efforts to elect Pat – a tax-cutting, fiscal hawk – next year. Our campaign to recruit 2,010 contributors by December 31 is going incredibly well because of your support. But in order to put us over the top by December 31, we need your help right now. Please consider donating $5, $10, $50 or even $100 today.

Sen. Specter’s 60th vote to advance the bill last night also violates the Taxpayer Protection Pledge he signed when he ran for the U.S. Senate. The pledge is a written commitment to vote against any net income tax increases. The pledge binds him to the commitment for the duration of his career as a senator. The health care bill Sen. Specter supports includes 18 different tax increases of nearly $500 billion over the next decade – billions of which are income tax hikes.

Again, whatever help you can give our campaign right now will go a very long way toward electing Pat next year. We are approaching 2,000 contributors, and we’ll need 2,010 to reach our recruitment goal by the end of the month. Please consider making an online contribution of $10, $25 or even $100 right now.

Thank you very much for your continued support and happy holidays,


Mark Harris
Campaign Manager
Toomey For Senate
