Dems Plan to Raise Taxes If The Majority After 2018 Elections

A press release from Congressman Roskam:

Roskam camp calls on Casten to be honest with Sixth District voters about raising taxes

DuPage County, IL – Earlier this month Congressional Democrats released their plan to raise taxes on Americans if they win majority control of the House and Senate following the 2018 elections.

Sean Casten, who opposed the tax cuts that gave Sixth District families making the median income a tax savings of more than $4,600, has yet to indicate whether he agrees with this latest Democrat plan to raise taxes.

The Democrat tax hike plan would include an increase of the top marginal tax rate from 37 to 39.6 percent – an increase that would directly impact small and mid-sized businesses, in addition to individuals who are now seeing bigger paychecks thanks to the Tax Cut and Jobs Act.

This law directly impacts the ability of American companies to compete on the world stage, rolling back what was the highest corporate income tax rate in the developed world.

Democrats would reverse these gains by increasing the corporate income tax rate from 21 to 25 percent.

The plan introduced by Congressional Democrats would also roll back changes made to the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT), restoring this burdensome tax which impacts more than 30,000 families in Illinois’ Sixth District.

“The thousands of families who have received meaningful tax relief this year deserve to know whether Sean Casten fully supports his party’s efforts to raise tax rates and fully reinstate the Alternative Minimum Tax,” said Roskam for Congress spokesman Veronica Vera.

“Now that his party has committed to increasing taxes on families and small businesses, Sean Casten has a responsibility to Sixth District voters to be honest about his intentions to raise their taxes.”

  1. Maybe Ro-SCAM can be honest, too! About not funding the Wall! But he votes to fund Israel’s Wall.


    American taxpayers have in effect paid for the erection of the now almost completed 150 mile-long “security” wall along Israel’s border with Egypt—designed to stop Africans from entering the Zionist state—a new article in the Examiner has revealed.

    The article, written by Dave Gibson, a former legislative aide to a state senator and a widely published journalist, is titled “We can pay for Israel’s border fence but not our own” and says that the Israeli fence had cost $430 million.

  3. More than 40 percent of the National Debt was added during the 8 years of President Obama’s Administration. He had to sign off on the spending.

  4. Tic, tock, tic, tock… the Iraq war and Afghanistan war expenditures were never included in the budget during the baby Bush years…tic, tock, tic, tock… according to Dick Cheney “deficits didn’t matter…tic, tock, tic, tock…what a glorious political science professor we have in this sunshine blog…tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeoooowwwww…

  5. Much of Obama’s debt was to get us out of Bush’s deep recession.
    Bush tactic; cut taxes for the rich, start unfunded wars, take us into recession. Sound familiar?

  6. Oblahblah’s debt was to take this country to complete ruination. Pretty much the same objective of the Bush’s.

  7. Boiler plate narrative of the Democrat Party, left wingers, Bernie Sanders followers and kooks is to bash the rich. The rich don’t pay enough, the rich don’t pay their fair share, the rich get all the breaks, blah, blah, blah.

    In 2015, those are rich or who had adjusted gross incomes over $195,000 per year paid 60 percent of the taxes collected by the IRS. But, these people only
    accounted for 36 percent of total income by tax payers in the U.S.

    The rich contribute more than their fair share needed to run our federal government including the military.

    See a rich person, thank a rich person. This especially applies to those who pay very little or no federal income taxes.

  8. Wow, one side accuses the other of raising taxes. This might be the most original attack ever. Wellplayed, said no one with over a second grade education.


  9. That’s why I say “raise taxes…on the rich.” See a middle class? Thank a middle class! Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock…

  10. Peter Roskam has not figured out yet that he can’t lie to to his constituents, ignore and cheat the middle class and and be re-elected You took away our health care and we are taking away your job.
