Gomez, Markey differ on economic remedies

Republican Gabriel E. Gomez and Democrat Edward J. Markey share a common belief that gridlock in a broken Washington, D.C., is a drag on the country’s economy. But the two US Senate hopefuls otherwise part ways on issues that affect American commerce and jobs.

Markey supports increased taxes on the wealthy, while Gomez opposes them. Gomez, citing a need for a balanced budget, would not vote to increase the country’s debt limit without also cutting spending. Markey would, saying he does not “believe in holding the full faith and credit of the US hostage for political gain.”
