Republicans rewrite tax code to favor the wealthy & corporations with the help of Gov. Sununu
Concord, N.H. - Today, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass a Republican tax bill that promises to raise taxes on hundreds of thousands of Granite Staters, kick 13 million Americans off health insurance and raise the deficit by $1.4 trillion. Governor Sununu has been a strong supporter of the bill in all forms from day one. The bill now goes to President Trump for his signature. NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement: "With the full-throated support of Governor Sununu, the Republican Party just rewrote our tax code to favor the wealthy elites and corporate special interests in a partisan, closed-door process. Among countless other destructive provisions, the bill will raise taxes on hundreds of thousands of Granite Staters by 2027, lead to 13 million more Americans without health insurance and increase the deficit by more than $1.4 trillion. Sununu's support for this harmful bill is no anomaly. He signed a tax cut of over $100 million for the wealthiest 3% of corporations during his first 6 months in office, and gave himself a $22,000 pay raise on day one while he still hasn't signed a contract for state workers. New Hampshire voters will hold Sununu accountable for selling out the interests of middle class families and small businesses to benefit himself, his friends, and his corporate special interest backers."
