Governor Terry McAuliffe to Hold Town Hall on the Impact of the TrumpTax in Virginia

Event Continues Nationwide Tour Shining a Light on Republican Tax Hikes on the Middle Class
FOR PLANNING PURPOSES:

FAIRFAX, Virginia — On Tuesday, March 27, at 11:00 AM EST, Governor Terry McAuliffe will join elected officials, small business owners, labor leaders, tax experts, and affected families for a town hall on the TrumpTax’s disastrous impact on Virginia’s working families. The event continues a nationwide tour to shed light on the devastating repercussions of Republican tax breaks for billionaires and wealthy corporations at the expense of working families.
The fallout from the TrumpTax will be devastating, with The Tax Policy Center finding that 92 million middle-income families across America will pay more in taxes, while the richest 0.1 percent will get a nearly $150,000 tax break at the expense of working families and small businesses. Moreover, millions of Americans will see a 10 percent increase in health insurance premiums and our commitment to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will be undermined.
In the Commonwealth of Virginia, the impact of the TrumpTax will be highly skewed toward the already-wealthy. Analysis from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy shows that the tax cuts in the TrumpTax bill “are tilted dramatically in favor of the richest Virginia residents while the tax increases fall more heavily on lower-income Virginia families.”
After Tuesday’s event, the 100-day tour will continue hosting events around the country, featuring senators, congressional representatives, local elected officials, and people affected by the law. The tour will continue with stops in Georgia, New Mexico, and Maine.
