80% of Tax Cuts Go to Top 1% While Middle Class Taxes Go Up Under Barletta-Backed Plan
Millionaire Congressman Lou Barletta is in Harrisburg today with President Trump to tout the Congressional Republican plan to cut taxes for the wealthy few while raising them for middle class Pennsylvania families. Ahead of the event, Pennsylvania Democratic Party spokesman Max Steele released the following statement:
“Congressman Barletta has decided to use the first major event of his Senate campaign to pitch a plan that raises taxes on hardworking Pennsylvanians while slashing them for his fellow millionaires. If Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and Lou Barletta get their way, middle class Pennsylvania families will pay more while 80% of the tax breaks go to the wealthiest 1% of Americans.
“No amount of spin can change the basic fact that Congressman Barletta would be voting to cut his own taxes while raising them on the middle class. Pennsylvanians deserve better.”
