DSCC Launches NEW Ad on Republican Tax Scheme: “Mailbox”

Spot features individual learning how the Republican proposal will increase their taxes in order to benefit the wealthy and well-connected.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee today launched a new television ad on the GOP tax scheme, “Mailbox,” highlighting how the Republican plan “would cut taxes of [the] wealthy and increase taxes on families earning less than $75,000.”

The spot features individuals learning how the Republican’s agenda will increase their taxes and make the middle class pay more in order to benefit the wealthy and well-connected – highlighting specific and popular tax deductions like state and local taxes, student loan interest, and medical expenses that will be eliminated. The ad will initially run online as a part of an ongoing six-figure digital buy.

“Washington Republicans are so determined to put more money in the pockets of the wealthy and the well-connected that they’re willing to raise taxes on hard working Americans on everything from medical expenses to student loans,” said DSCC Chairman Senator Chris Van Hollen. “These wrong and self-serving priorities are guaranteed to turn off voters of every political persuasion, and every GOP Senate candidate will be held accountable for their toxic and unpopular tax scam.”
