Nancy Pelosi's SuperPAC is misleading voters about the national tax reform bill by pushing misleading and false attacks. Team Dino is responding here because we believe it's important to give voters the whole truth. The truth is, Washington State is gaining thousands of new jobs thanks to the tax cuts, and families are keeping thousands of their own dollars instead of giving that money to the federal government. Dino firmly believes that tax relief for the middle class is key to job growth and has a strong and proven track record of defending the middle class.
CLAIM: 83% of the tax bill's benefits go to the top 1% of earners.
FACT: This claim is untrue. 80% of the tax bill's benefits actually go to people outside the top 1% according to independent FactCheck.org.
Dino is the only candidate in this race who has a track record of cutting taxes and preventing tax hikes for middle class families. Every other candidate in this race has supported costly increases in income taxes or energy taxes, but Dino will always stand against attempts to raise your taxes.
CLAIM: If you're over 50, AARP says your health insurance will go up as much as $1,500 next year.
FACT: If that's true, it has nothing to do with the tax cuts or anything Dino supports. The cost of health care is rising, but that has been true since the passage of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and has nothing to do with the tax legislation passed by Congress.
Dino supports solutions to bring down the cost of health care. He has also received the Senior Star Award from AARP and eight different awards from advocates for people with developmental disabilities for his work crafting budgets that protect them. Dino has always prioritized protecting the vulnerable and will continue to do so in Congress.
