Letter to the editor: Marie Gluesenkamp Perez did a ‘bait and switch’ 


I was astounded to discover that the new congresswoman for district 3, Marie Gluesenkamp Perez, voted against HR 23, the Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act on her first day in the new 118th Congress.

This bill, HR 23, would defund the monies to the IRS to pay for 87,000 new IRS agents, would no longer allow the IRS to audit small transactions of $600 or more, and would prohibit the IRS from auditing small businesses and hard-working families who earn less than $400,000 per year. 

Thankfully, HR 23 passed the House. However, Marie chose to protect the IRS and vote against small businesses and hard-working families by voting against HR 23.

During Marie’s campaign, she promised she would champion small businesses and family-owned businesses in Washington’s Third Congressional District. She clearly did a “bait and switch” on the people of the third district and voted for more of the same Democratic socialist status quo.
