Congressional Candidate Calls for Repeal of Out-Sourcing Tax Breaks

Louisville, KY – Congressional Candidate Nick Clooney is calling
for the repeal of federal tax breaks for companies
that shift jobs overseas.Clooney is running against
Republican Geoff Davis in Kentucky's Fourth
Congressional District.

Clooney, who is a Democrat, says Congress should reward tax
incentives to companies that expand their work
forces in the United States. The Davis campaign says their
candidate supports a tax system that encourages
U-S productivity.

The two candidates are running for the seat
currently held by Democrat Ken Lucas, who is not
seeking re-election this year.
