If you are a Democrat, you are probably already celebrating Tax Day. It's a day that liberals in Washington have circled on their calendar. For the rest of us, today feels more a root canal than a holiday.
Every year, on April 15th, Democrats are able to see all their hard work pay off for their their big spending ways. It's when millions of working Americans send their income tax to Uncle Sam.
Of course, your income isn't the only part of your life the Democrats want to tax. Some would say that given the opportunity, there isn't anything you do that the Democrats won't tax.
Here's a list of the 10 worst tax offenses by Democrats running for Senate this year:
1) The Family Farm
With the Death Tax set to lapse in December 2009, Bruce Braley voted to make the 45% tax (with a $3.5 million exemption) permanent.
Remember, Bruce Braley is not a big fan
2) Carbon Emissions

Mark Begich voted in favor of establishing a new tax on carbon emissions in 2013.
Saying one thing to Alaskans and voting the opposite when in Washington.
3) Medical Devices For Veterans

Mark Warner voted against exempting medical devices for veterans from the medical device tax.
Not even our nation's veterans are spared by the Democrats' tax agenda.
4) Senior Citizens' Social Security Benefits
Mark Pryor voted against repealing the 1993 social security benefits tax increase.
That's the wrong way, Senator.
Mary Landrieu voted against tax cuts that increased the child tax credit to $1,000 in 2003.
This is not how Louisiana families would do it.
6) Married People

Mark Udall voted against eliminating the marriage penalty. The move would cut taxes for married couples an estimated $89.9 billion over 5 years.
Nothing to see here, folks.

As Governor, Jeanne Shaheen proposed a new 2.5% sales tax in New Hampshire.
It's cool because it's to "protect families" and "won't harm the economy."
Al Franken voted for Obamacare, which included a 2.3% medical device tax. When given the opportunity, he also voted NO on an amendment to remove the tax.
Americans that need this life-saving technology think he's a real boob.
Gary Peters voted for a national energy tax/cap-and-trade bill, which was estimated
to raise revenues by nearly $846 billion and spend $821 billion giving away emissions credits.
At the time, the Wall Street Journal said
it was “the biggest tax in American history.” Nothing to smile about.
Jeff Merkley voted to increase Oregon's gas tax by 5 cents in 1999.
Taking the food out of your mouth for bigger government spending.
Democrats haven't met a tax they didn't like. On Tax Day, help put a stop to their reckless tax and spend agenda. Contribute to a Republican Senate majority in 2014.
