Politcus USA: Meet The 4 Democratic Senators Who Are Refusing To Raise Taxes On The Rich

-By Jason Easley

October 1, 2011- Meet the four Democratic Senators who are so worried about their own reelection campaigns that they are refusing to raise taxes on the wealthy.

Yesterday, I wrote an article based on Sen. Dick Durbin telling a local Chicago radio station that some Democrats in the Senate are refusing to raise taxes on the wealthy in an election year. At the time of publication, I didn’t have the names of the Democrats who won’t raise taxes on the rich, but I do now.

Lots of commenters wanted the names and contact information for the Un-Fantastic Four, so here they are.

1). Sen. Bob Casey –Email Twitter

2). Sen. Mary Landrieu- Email
