McCain Voted To Increase Taxes Nearly 500 Times

Liars and Thieves (pt.2)

If turn about is fair play then it should be noted (and forwarded widely) that John McCain Supported Nearly 500 Tax Increases Throughout His Career Including 105 Tax Increases Since 2005.

Despite Senator McCain's rhetoric, and under his method of calculation, he has supported 477 tax increases throughout his Congressional career. McCain supported 105 tax increases since 2005.

McCain's tax increases included: twice supporting increased excise taxes imposed on public charities, supporting an excise tax on certain acquisitions of interest in insurance, and twice supporting an expansion on the base of the tax on private foundation net investment income.
