The group, Americans for Limited Government, says the Iron River Republican’s vote was disappointing and may serve to launch a challenge against him in the next election.
ALG President Bill Wilson issued a statement condemning Benishek for voting in favor of the legislation that raises taxes on those making $400,000 and more, which includes many small businesses. Wilson says Benishek’s vote to raise taxes on job creators is a recipe for higher unemployment.
Wilson added, “this vote is sad and may engender a primary challenge in 2014, and Representative Benishek will have nobody to blame but himself.”
