Share the article: The DCCC Doubles Down On Betsy Londrigan’s Tax Reform Lies

The DCCC and Betsy Londrigan are peddling lies about the positive economic effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act 

Democrats in Washingtion at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Betsy Londrigan spent the 2018 campaign cycle peddling a lie that middle class families in IL-13 and across America were not benefiting from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Now, the DCCC is doubling down on this lie with paid advertising even as writers for the New York Times wrote, “To a large degree, the gap between perception and reality on the tax cuts appears to flow from a sustained – and misleading – effort by liberal opponents of the law to brand it as a broad middle-class tax increase.”

The data shows average tax liabilities are down 24.9 percent, two-thirds of American workers paid less, according to the Tax Policy Center, and our economy continues to grow.

“Middle class families in Illinois are saving because Washington is taking less out of their paychecks,” said Illinois Republican Party Spokesman Aaron DeGroot. “Democrats in Washington and Betsy Londrigan need to stop lying about tax reform and be honest: Americans at every income level owe less because Republicans like Rodney Davis chose tax cuts and economic growth over tax hikes and the status quo.”

More on Londrigan’s lies about tax reform:

WGLT: “It’s that middle-class working families are losing with that tax bill.”

WGLT: Speaking before her October 4th rally in Bloomington, Londrigan said constituents in the 13th District “are very aware that that tax scam and the benefits from it were not for them.”

WGLT: Londrigan misleading voters by saying: “83 percent of the benefits went to the wealthiest, corporations, and special interests. It was not a middle-class tax cut.”

State Journal-Register: Londrigan said the economic boom has not reached everyone, however, calling it “a giveaway to corporations and special interests.”
