Reynolds Pushes Tax Hike For Working Families

January 14th, 2020 - Posted By: Progress Iowa

Progress Iowa Executive Director Matt Sinovic issued the following statement in response to Governor Reynolds’ condition of the state address today:

“Governor Reynolds continues to push snake oil solutions at the expense of Iowa families. Today she promoted an income tax cut that would be paid for in large part by raising the sales tax, which hits hardest on working families.

The Governor just doesn’t get it. Iowans are happy to pay our fair share for our schools, roads, health care, and clean drinking water, but we are disappointed and fed up with her raising taxes on hardworking Iowans while cutting taxes for the wealthy and giving away hundreds of millions to companies like Apple and Facebook.

We need to invest in each other, in our public services, and the only way we can sustain those investments over the long term is for corporations and the wealthy to pay their fair share. Unfortunately Governor Reynolds’ priorities are backwards and out of line with Iowa values.”
