Granato: GOP Candidates Want To Increase Taxes on 83% of Taxpayers

Tommy Burr, Out of Context:

Sam Granato, the Democratic nominee for Sen. Bob Bennett's seat, castigated Republican primary opponents Mike Lee and Tim Bridgewater for expressing support during a KSL debate for "so-called 'fair' or 'flat' tax plans" that, according to Granato, "economists say could result in substantial tax increases for 83 percent of American families."

"That doesn't sound fair to me at all," he said in a release Wednesday.

Granato said that non-partisan fact-checking organizations have said these plans aren’t very flat or fair, and will result in tax hikes for families earning less than $100,000 per year, while the wealthy receive sizeable tax cuts.

“Lee and Bridgewater need to stop pandering to extreme ideologues and start focusing on helping the Utah families who need it most,” Granato continued.

Republicans want to raise your taxes. Republicans want to raise your taxes. Sounds like who I want to vote for.....
