A new analysis out this week from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center confirms what we already knew about Republican Senator Dean Heller’s tax plan — it’s tax cut for his wealthy donors and a tax hike for many middle class families.
The Tax Policy Center analysis of the Senate GOP tax bill finds:
- 50% of all households will see a tax increase compared to current law.
- 65% of middle-income households will see a tax increase compared to current law.
- 98% of households in the top 0.1% will see a tax cut compared to current law.
Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Sarah Abel released the following statement:
“Instead of pushing for real tax relief for the middle class, Senator Heller is pushing through a scam that will increases taxes on working families while giving his billionaire donors a massive tax cut. Just like he broke his promise on health care, Senator Heller is proving again that Nevadans can’t take him at his word. Nevadans are tired of having a Senator who lies through his teeth, and that’s why they will vote Dean Heller out in 2018.”
