NH GOP Senate Candidates Would Be a Yes Vote for McConnell’s Plan to Raise Taxes on Granite Staters
Senate Republicans just announced that their top priority if they retake the majority is raising taxes on Granite Staters. That’s right — Chuck Morse, Kevin Smith, and Don Bolduc would all be yes votes to raise taxes on Granite Staters in a Mitch McConnell-led Senate. In a stunning document laying out their agenda if they retake the majority, Mitch McConnell’s top political lieutenant Rick Scott promised to raise taxes on Granite Staters and Americans across the country, saying, “all Americans should pay some income tax to have skin in the game, even if a small amount.” Rick Scott’s plan would target senior citizens, who often pay no federal income tax. “While Senator Hassan and Democrats in Washington are fighting to lower costs for Granite Staters, Republicans are scheming to raise taxes on New Hampshire families to help their corporate special interest backers,” said NHDP spokesperson Gates MacPherson. “This is an out-of-touch and costly plan that lays bare how Granite Staters would quite literally pay the price for McConnell’s pro-corporate special interest agenda that Chuck Morse, Kevin Smith, and Don Bolduc would all support in the US Senate.” The entire Republican field has gone out of their way to curry favor with McConnell and Scott. Kevin Smith took time away from his taxpayer-funded job to travel to meet with McConnell’s campaign arm and his top lieutenant, Senator Rick Scott, Don Bolduc hired one of McConnell’s former staffers at the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and Chuck Morse has been personally singled out by McConnell as an acceptable Senate candidate in NH.
