A press release from Congressman Peter Roskam:
Casten’s record makes it clear: he intends to raise your taxes
DuPage County, IL – Sean Casten has made it perfectly clear to voters in the Sixth District he intends to raise their taxes.
- Earlier this year, Casten said he’d vote to repeal the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act if elected, fully reinstating the Alternative Minimum Tax that hurt more than 30,000 Sixth District taxpayers and taking away the tax breaks families and small businesses saw as a result.
- Casten has repeatedly refused to tell Sixth District voters if he would support the tax hike plan Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in Congress promised to implement if given majority control of the House and Senate.
- Casten refuses to stand up for the taxpayers in his district against Illinois Democratic Gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker state income tax hike plan.
- Last summer, when Illinoisans were saddled with a 32% state income tax increase – Casten remained silent.
“Sean Casten’s tried to avoid his record on tax hikes, but it’s time for him to be honest and tell the hardworking taxpayers in our district he intends follow Nancy Pelosi’s lead and raise their taxes,” said Roskam for Congress spokesman, Veronica Vera.
