We all remember when President Donald Trump unveiled his tax plan on his official website( he was still only president-elect bach then) and, safe to say, a lot of people were surprised by it. How much will you be paying? Well, relief probably is on the way.
According to the website, Trump’s vision for his tax plan promised to “reduce taxes across the board — especially for working and middle-income Americans.” The vision also stated that “(n)o one will pay so much that it destroys jobs or undermines our ability to compete.”
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said on Wednesday that he will not support the Senate GOP tax plan, becoming the first GOP senator to say he will oppose the proposal.
“If they can pass it without me, let them,” Johnson told The Wall Street Journal. “I’m not going to vote for this tax package.”
Senate Republicans have a narrow path to clearing the tax plan. With a 52-seat majority, if every Democrat votes no, they can only afford to lose two GOP senators and still have Vice President Pence break a tie.
Johnson confirmed in a statement that he currently opposes both the House and Senate tax plans, which, he argues, do not do enough to help “pass-through entities.”
“These businesses truly are the engines of innovation and job creation throughout our economy, and they should not be left behind,” Johnson said. “[I] look forward to working with my colleagues to address the disparity so I can support the final version.”
So basically this traitor opposes something that would benefit the low-income families! Do you agree?
