“I really resent anybody saying that I’m just 'doing this for the rich'” - Orrin Hatch, Nov 16, 2017
The numbers don't lie.
Hatch's tax bill is nothing but a handout to the wealthiest Americans.
Under Hatch's tax plan:
Utahns would end up paying over $200 million more a year on their state income taxes. - Salt Lake Tribune, 11/16/17
Taxes for families earning less than $75,000 would go UP. - Vox, 11/16/17
$1.5 trillion will be added to the deficit over the decade due to its large tax cuts for high-income households and corporations. - Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, 11/17/17
Private jet owners will receive a tax break. - The Hill, 11/16/17
The Affordable Care Act individual mandate would be repealed. That will leave 13 million more people uninsured, raise premiums for millions more, and cause uncertainty and instability in the individual health insurance market. - Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, 11/17/17
