FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Thursday, April 5, 2018
Washington, D.C. — Ahead of Donald Trump’s remarks at a West Virginia roundtable, Not One Penny spokesperson Tim Hogan released the following statement:
“Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans owe an explanation to families in West Virginia because the TrumpTax is not working for them. As wealthy corporations tout millions and billions in profits and shareholder buybacks, middle-class families are sitting at their kitchen tables wondering why this tax bill is hurting the very programs that they depend on.”
Key facts on the impacts of the TrumpTax in West Virginia:
62,900 West Virginians will lose health insurance under the TrumpTax.
1 in 4 West Virginians will see a tax increase thanks to the TrumpTax.
West Virginia has the highest Medicaid enrollment per capita, which will be undermined by the TrumpTax.
