Washington, D.C. – During a virtual meet-and-greet in PA last week, Dem Senate candidate Conor Lamb said the quiet part out loud. Democrats want and need to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for their reckless spending spree.
Conor Lamb: “If we want to propose a lot of new spending and adventurous new government programs in our party, we have to have the confidence to ask … the middle class and people like that to contribute to it. And I think that’s … what we’re missing right now.”
For months, Democrats were only acknowledging that they would raise taxes on billionaires and millionaires (except those in high-tax blue states).
As a best friend to the progressives, Conor Lamb set the record straight last week by indicating that in fact his party will have to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for their socialist spending spree. As we know, these job-killing tax hikes would only put hardworking families and job creators in Pennsylvania at a disadvantage.
Statement from NRSC Spokeswoman Lizzie Litzow: “Conor Lamb said the quiet part out loud. Whoops. He admitted what we have known all along: Democrats need and want to raise taxes on the middle class. Pennsylvanians deserve better.”
