IN THE STATES: Republicans’ Plan to Raise Taxes Makes Headlines

In the states this week, the DNC launched a digital ad buy ahead of Tax Day on Monday in key battlegrounds targeted to Google searches for tax services. The ads are reminding voters in North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Nevada of Republicans’ plan that could raise taxes on half of Americans. On top of these ads, Democrats in states across the country are united in spreading the word about Republicans’ plan to raise taxes. 

President Biden, Vice President Harris, and members of the Cabinet also hit the road this week to kick off their Rural Infrastructure Tour, announcing new steps to address the pain people are feeling at the pump as a result of Putin’s Price Hike and highlighting how the Biden administration is working to lower costs and build a better America.

Across the country, President Biden and Democrats’ American Rescue Plan continues to help states expand affordable housing and help families make rent…

…so much so that Republicans who opposed the relief package are trying to take credit for the savings it’ll mean for Americans. 

  • In New Hampshire: New Hampshire Union Leader: Gov. Sununu hypes $100 million housing plan
    • “A spokeswoman for the New Hampshire Democratic Party said Sununu is trying to claim as his own the work of the all-Democratic congressional delegation that got the ARPA money. ‘Sununu said he would have voted ‘no’ on the American Rescue Plan, but that hasn’t stopped him from taking credit for this funding,’ Monica Venzke said. ‘No matter how he tries to spin this to the press today, one thing is clear — Sununu has failed to alleviate New Hampshire’s housing crisis, and Granite Staters are paying the price,’ she said.”
