From the Albuquerque Journal – April. 27, 2021
AFTER HEARING Sen. Mark Moores’ ad in which he says that Rep. Melanie Stansbury did not help pass legislation for exempting state income tax on Social Security payments in the 2020 legislative session, I knew I had to write because this is really stretching the truth. He twisted the information. I will shout the reality.
Moores’ ad twists information to scare senior citizens when in fact, Stansbury did work toward passing this legislation. She sponsored not one but three bills to exempt Social Security from state income taxes.
The N.M. Legislative session ended without these bills passing. It’s not as if Stansbury didn’t try or was against these bills. Stansbury stated: “I stand with our seniors. In Congress, I’ll continue to protect Social Security.”
Her legislative record attests to this.
Will (her CD1) opponent, Moores, do the same?
Information on the candidates’ legislative bills and activities can be found (by searching online for) KOB Fact Check on Moore’s amendment — proof offered by the campaign.
