Monmouth Poll shows 47% of Americans disapprove of Martha McSally’s tax bill
McSally’s GOP tax plan would explode the national deficit by more than two trillion dollars
PHOENIX – Congresswoman Martha McSally and the Arizona Republican Party today put party loyalty ahead of Arizonans by backing an unpopular tax plan by the GOP establishment that would raise taxes on hardworking Arizona families.
Congresswoman McSally’s GOP tax plan is expected to raise taxes on more than one million Arizonans while exploding the national deficit by more than two trillion dollars. Further, this tax scam would yank away health insurance from more than 13 million Americans, including many Arizonans. No wonder nearly half of the American public disapproves of it.
“Congresswoman Martha McSally’s tax plan is an utter disaster for Arizona. Instead of listening to Arizonans, McSally buckled to party leaders in Washington by supporting a plan that rips away health insurance and raises taxes on hardworking families all while exploding the national deficit,” said Drew Anderson, senior communications advisor. “With our state and our children’s future at stake, Martha McSally is falling in line with the partisan discord that has Arizonans fed up with Washington. They won’t forget this in 2018.”
Martha McSally and the AZGOP previously supported tax plans that would have increased the national deficit by more than a trillion dollars, cut nearly $25 billion from Medicare, and slash numerous tax deductions, including the mortgage interest deduction from Arizonans. A strong number of Arizonans opposed previous versions of the GOP tax plan.
McSally’s GOP tax plan would make it harder for families to make ends meet and further highlight the partisan discord that has Arizonans fed up with Washington. The Arizona Democratic Party will highlight Martha McSally’s priority to put her party loyalty ahead of Arizonans from now until the midterm elections in November 2018.
