Man from Massachusetts


ANNOUNCER: Paid for by Bush-Cheney '04 Inc.

BUSH: I'm George W. Bush, and I approve this message.

JAY MOCCIA: My name is Jay Moccia. I'm a law enforcement officer in the greater Boston area. And for the record, I think you guys have a funny accent, too.

John Kerry has been my senator for 20 years. Now he's running for president. You might want to know him the way some of us in Massachusetts do.

Take his record on taxes. John Kerry likes to raise taxes. So much so he's voted for higher taxes 350 times. I'm a working guy with six kids. The last thing I need is another Kerry tax increase.

Senator Kerry also voted to increase taxes on seniors' Social Security benefits. No, it's not fair at all. These people have worked their whole lives and to put a tax on them is just wrong.

And sad to say, John Kerry even voted against giving small businesses tax breaks so they could provide health care for their employees.

It looks like Kerry's gonna raise taxes about $900 billion within his first 100 days in office. I'd say look, trust me, John Kerry likes to raise taxes. It's what he's done before, and you know he'll do it again. That's just, just wrong.
