As a report by the Center for American Progress uncovered – the current tax reform bill being pushed by Republicans would raise taxes on 24 million working and middle class Americans – that includes 9.2 million single parents. Meanwhile, it protects the Bush tax cuts for the top 2%.
A recent report by the Center on Budget Policy and Priorities found that the average millionaire received one million in tax cuts over the last decade thanks to the Bush tax cuts. The Democrats’ tax proposal – which raises taxes on the top 2% back to Clinton-era levels – would only hit 2 million people with a tax – the 2 million wealthiest Americans, that is.
So, the Republican proposal raises taxes on 12-times more Americans that the Democratic proposal. Shouldn’t Grover Norquist be freaking out? Or does he only care when rich people are hit with tax hikes?
