GOP tax plan hurts middle class
MADISON, WI – Despite overwhelming opposition from working families, seniors, farmers and homeowners, Congressional Republicans passed the Ryan-McConnell Tax Plan.
The plan would raise taxes on the middle class and working families while giving tax cuts to the wealthiest. Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:
“Whether it’s health care repeal or a tax plan that favors the wealthy, Republicans continue to push dangerous policies that hurt working families. The opportunity to achieve the American Dream is out of reach for far too many families because Republican tax policies favor the wealthy. Our economy works best when everyone gets a fair shot and everyone plays by the same rules. Rather than more Republican tax breaks for the wealthy, Democrats want to restore tax fairness and create a better deal for communities, seniors and working families.”
