This may come as a shock, but every Democrat running in the 10th Congressional district is opposed to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and they didn’t do much to hide it at their forum on Saturday.
• State Sen. Jennifer Wexton made her position absolutely clear: "I think the first thing we should to is try to roll back the tax cuts,” she said. "I am loathe to cut spending.”• Alison Friedman didn’t mince words either, saying that “Congress must address the abomination that is this tax bill."• Lindsay Davis Stover said the tax cuts — which have already seen Virginians taking home bigger paychecks — were actually a “tax increase.”• Deep Sran went even further: "Everything that is wrong is in this one piece of legislation."
"Erin Parker, a high school history teacher in San Antonio, said she did not like many elements of the law, particularly its big reduction of the estate tax, and said she was skeptical that it would provide much of an economic lift. But Ms. Parker, who described herself as an independent who tends to support Democrats, said the bill would probably help the technology start-up where her husband works."
"'Hearing about the implications for my husband’s business improved my view of it a bit,' she said."
“Democrat rhetoric on taxes has run face-first into the buzz saw of reality. People who were told their taxes were going up are getting bigger paychecks, and voters who were told they sky would fall are now seeing higher wages, bonuses, and better benefits." — Garren Shipley, RNC spokesman
