Democrats Ensure GOP Answers for Their Plan To Raise Taxes

Senate Republicans are shining a light on their agenda to raise costs for working Americans – despite Mitch McConnell’s best efforts to keep voters in the dark. After Senator Rick Scott laid out the Republican agenda to raise taxes on the majority of Americans and sunset Social Security and Medicare, Republicans have lined up to openly cheer on tax cuts for the wealthy while some have even claimed the middle class doesn’t pay enough in taxes.

While Senate Republicans blow the door wide open on their plan, the DNC is here to make sure every voter knows what a Republican-led Congress could mean for the American people:

The Hill: “The focus on Scott is also coming from the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which released a digital ad this week targeting Google searches for tax services with Monday’s tax filing deadline. The ad links to a website,, run by the DSCC that ‘breaks down who could pay more under NRSC Chair Rick Scott and Republicans’ tax plan,’ according to the DNC’s announcement on the ad.”

MSNBC: “And why would the DNC help promote an appearance from the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee? There’s no great mystery here: The Florida senator’s plan, among other things, proposes tax hikes on tens of millions of Americans, and Democrats are eager to exploit this election year gift.”

Pennsylvania Capital-Star: “…the Democratic National Committee will target Scott next week with a digital advertising buy in Pennsylvania, a spokesperson told the Capital-Star. The buy is timed to coincide with tax day on April 18. People who search for tax services will be directed to a website criticizing a Scott-penned policy agenda that would raise taxes for a third of Pennsylvania residents.”

Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “Tax Day is upon us on Monday. And the Democratic National Committee is launching a digital ad buy in Georgia targeting people Googling tax services. The DNC ads take aim at Florida’s U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, who has released an 11-part plan that Democrats say would impose income taxes on roughly half of Americans who pay none now.”
