Tax Day: Heller’s Tax Plan Is Out of Touch

Today, the wealthiest 1 percent and giant corporations are rejoicing about the Republican tax bill. The latest news this week shows that CEOs and wealthy investors have made off like bandits, benefitting over workers by a nearly 3-to-1 margin. Voters are seeing through the lies from Sen. Dean Heller and D.C. Republicans – this tax plan was designed for rich donors, not for them.

Nevada Democratic State Party spokesperson Sarah Abel released the following statement:

“Instead of fighting for Nevada’s working families, Sen. Heller wrote a tax bill that gives massive cuts for the rich and corporate CEOs while leaving regular people behind. Because of Heller’s tax bill, Nevadans are worried about increased health care costs, higher taxes down the line, and radical GOP plans to slash Social Security and Medicare. Voters are seeing this bill for what it is: a scam.”
