36 million Americans will face a tax hike with the GOP bill. Thousands of them live in CD1.
Today Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement after the House GOP passed its disastrous tax bill that will shift money from working families to the wealthiest in the nation.
“Of the 50,000 constituents in my district who itemize their taxes, the majority earns less than $75,000 per year. Thousands of teachers are able to deduct expenses they incur to buy supplies for their classrooms. Students deduct interest on their loans. The sick and disabled deduct medical expenses. Taxpayers in my district reduce their burden by more than $1.4 billion every year with these deductions and others. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Do not be fooled by the ‘trickle-down’ rhetoric and the brackets in the GOP’s plan. Thirty-six million middle-class Americans will see a tax hike in this bill. Thousands of them live in my district.”
