People on the left can’t stand the fact that the American people are being allowed to keep more of their own money. Bernie Sanders, who may run for president again in 2020, has admitted that he wants to raise people’s taxes.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Bernie Sanders calls for repeal of GOP tax law
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., called Monday for the Republican tax law to be repealed after the Congressional Budget Office projected that the deficit will hit $1 trillion in 2020.
The CBO projected that the budget deficit will rise to $804 billion for 2018 before hitting the $1 trillion mark in 2020 — two years earlier than anticipated. The national debt is also expected to hit $33 trillion in ten years after it hit the $21 trillion mark last month. Democrats are laying blame at the acceleration of the deficit and debt with the tax law that was passed in December.
“Over and over again, President Trump and his administration falsely claimed that their $1.5 trillion tax cut bill would pay for itself,” Sanders said in a statement. “Today’s Congressional Budget Office report puts that myth to rest.”…
“At a time of massive wealth and income inequality, we have got to repeal all of President Trump’s tax breaks for the wealthy and big corporations and rebuild the disappearing middle class,” he added.
Are Democrats and other people on the left like Bernie going to run on this in the midterms?
Are they actually going to run on raising people’s taxes?
