Republicans passed their GOP Tax Scam six months ago and Insurance Commissioner Rosendale supported a bill that has allowed health care companies to pocket billions without passing any of those savings onto patients, jeopardizes vital programs like Medicare, and irresponsibly increases the national debt by $1.9 trillion. The GOP tax law was designed to appease Republicans’ wealthy donors and benefits the wealthiest few and special interests at the expense of working Montanans. It’s no surprise that the tax law’s unpopularity is growing.
Here’s how the Congressional Republicans’ tax scam is negatively impacting Montanans.
CNBC: Tax cut riches have gone to execs and investors over workers by nearly 3-to-1 margin.
Washington Post: “The Republican tax law passed last fall will give the richest 1 percent of Americans an average personal income tax break of about $33,000, while the poorest Americans will receive an average personal income tax break of $40, according to a new study published this week by nonpartisan analysts.”
Washington Post: For the biggest group of American workers, wages aren’t just flat. They’re falling.
Senator Rubio: “There’s no evidence whatsoever that the money’s been massively poured back into the American worker.”
