Tax increasing GOP targeted by Democrats

Not One Penny
Again Republicans snatch defeat from the jaws of victory

  • Democrat ads saying "Not one penny" are targeting Republican Congressmen in California for supporting middle class tax increases.
  • It takes a special kind of moron GOP leadership to make their candidates run on a platform of increasing middle class taxes.

A coalition of liberal and labor groups named “Not One Penny” began airing a series of television ads on Saturday targeting five of California’s Republican members of Congress over the GOP’s tax reform plan.

The plan would cut middle class and corporate taxes, and remove a deduction for local and state taxes, which would disproportionately impact high earners living in states with high taxes, like California and New York reports Breitbart California.

It would also limit the property tax deduction to $10,000 and decrease the cap on mortgage interest deduction for loans at $500,000, which is half of the current $1 million limit.

“The Republican tax plan will raise taxes on California families by eliminating middle-class tax deductions to pay for a massive tax break for the super wealthy and big corporations,” the narrator of the 30-second ad says. “Tell your member of Congress to vote ‘no’ on the Republican tax plan. California families can’t afford it.”

According to the Los Angeles Times, the “Not One Penny” more ads are running in districts represented by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista), Rep. Steve Knight (R-Palmdale), Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa), Rep. Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) and Rep. Mimi Walters (R-Irvine).

2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won all five congressional districts in which the ads are being aired. The Times notes: “Flipping those districts is critical to the Democrats’ effort to retake the House of Representatives next year.”

Californians are NOT Millionaires
I pulled this Burbank home off the internet.  
3 bedrooms, 1 bath, 910 square feet, built in 1921 is selling for $699,000.
Yes our prices are insane, but the GOP is punishing middle class Californians with tax increases for the "crime" of putting a roof over the heads of their families.
Now there is a campaign slogan for you: "Vote for us and we will tax you more."
