John Gomez for Congress Announces: MTA Tax Has To Go!

Bohemia, NY – Local businessman John Gomez, Republican/Conservative congressional candidate for NY’s 2nd congressional district, has released a statement regarding Nassau County’s announcement to challenge the MTA Payroll Tax.

Gomez: “I applaud Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and GOP Lawmakers for their stand against the MTA “Bail Out” tax and I encourage other elected officials to follow suit – including my opponent.

“Recently, my opponent’s spokesperson stated in Newsday, “Steve Israel remains focused on rebuilding the local economy and passing tax reform to help Long Island families.” Yet, he remains silent on the MTA “Bail Out” tax!

“Not standing up against the MTA tax showcases the hypocrisy of my opponent’s campaign.

“‘Rebuilding the local economy starts with job creation. A bill that takes dollars out of the hands of small business owners, at a rate of 34 cents per $100, limits hiring-power and suppresses private-sector job growth.

“Similarly, remaining silent on the MTA tax stands in deep contrast to supporting “tax reform to help Long Island families.” The MTA tax rewards government failure and punishes success, placing a multimillion dollar levy on Long Island business and the mom and pop shops — such as the corner deli, local bakery and neighborhood pizza parlor – that make Long Island great!

“Finally, let’s look at the duplicitous Cap and Trade elements in the MTA tax.

“Long Islanders have been well ahead of the curve on supporting mass transit, which, in turn, limits our carbon footprint. And what does our government do to reward these efforts … they tax us!

“Mr. Israel, stand up for the business owners in your district. Step up and tell your Democratic peers in the New York State Assembly and Senate that enough is enough!”
