Ad Highlights How Coffman’s Vote For Republican Tax Plan Will Raise Taxes on Middle-Class Colorado Families, Eliminate Critical Deductions

Denver, CO — After House Republicans voted to raise taxes on middle-class families and give tax breaks to millionaires and wealthy corporations, Not One Penny released a new ad targeting Representative Mike Coffman (CO-06) for voting in favor of the bill. Representative Coffman’s vote helped push through the Trump tax plan that gives the wealthiest Americans a tax cut while over 600,000 Coloradans will see their taxes increase.

The new ad is part of a national seven-figure campaign aimed at holding Republicans in Congress accountable for their efforts to rig the system in favor of the wealthiest Americans at the expense of working people.

“With this vote Congressman Coffman proved that he would rather do the bidding of his wealthy and well-connected campaign donors than do what’s right for Colorado’s working families,” said Not One Penny spokesman Tim Hogan. “The bill that Congressman Coffman helped ram through the House is a taxpayer-funded giveaway to millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations, all at the expense of the middle class and his constituents will not forget his vote. ”


Recent of analysis of the Senate version of the bill shows that more than 87 million middle-class families would see tax increases under Republicans’ plan, while the top 1 percent would see an average tax cut of $32,510.
