The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) is launching a new digital ad today to make sure Georgians know Senator David Perdue voted for a painful tax hike on Gold Star families when he voted in 2017 for the reckless Republican tax law. The ad will run as part of a five-figure digital buy across battleground states.
While some Democrats and Republicans in the Senate have been working on a fix, Perdue, who voted proudly for the tax bill that caused this mess, is not owning up to the consequences of his vote. Instead, he’s been sitting on the sidelines, appearing to decline to co-sponsor the legislation while his Senate colleagues work across party lines to undo this cruel penalty hurting Gold Star families.
From Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Press Secretary Stewart Boss: “Senator David Perdue voted to give tax handouts to wealthy CEOs and huge corporate special interests while hiking taxes on Georgia families who have lost a loved one in military service. We’ll make sure ensure voters don’t forget that Perdue helped pass a reckless law forcing Gold Star families to pay higher taxes on survivor benefits, and that he’s not even working to pass the bill to clean up his mess and fix this cruel penalty.”
