Hawley: Missouri Deserves to Know if McCaskill Will Repeal New Tax Cuts
COLUMBIA, Mo. – With Tax Day approaching, Attorney General Josh Hawley is asking Senator Claire McCaskill if she will join her liberal colleagues in repealing the new tax law that is already starting to help Missouri families. McCaskill has refused to take a position on the future of the tax cuts going into effect this year.
“Partisan liberal Claire McCaskill refused to support the new tax cuts for working families, and now she’s refusing to say if she’ll join her friend Chuck Schumer to repeal them,” said Josh Hawley. “Senator McCaskill has voted more than 200 times for higher taxes, voted against the new tax law, and now she’s refusing to tell us what she’ll do if Democrats win back the Senate. As she continues to rake in millions from liberal elites who want to raise taxes on the middle-class, Missourians deserve to know if Senator McCaskill will repeal our new tax cuts.”
