Reports on Tax “Deal” Show House Republicans Still Plan to Increase Middle Class Taxes

House Republicans Reportedly Plan to Eliminate State Income Tax Deduction

On Monday, the Washington Post reported that House Republicans are planning to scrap the income tax deduction, which will create an unfair Middle Class Double Tax while giving handouts to the rich and big multinational corporations.

“No amount of spin can change the fact that House Republicans are still planning to increase taxes on middle-class Americans,” said DCCC Spokesman Tyler Law. “Speaker Ryan is completely out-of-touch with reality if he thinks forcing his most vulnerable members to walk the plank on this tax increase won’t be a huge political liability in 2018.”
