Biden Taxes

Cindy Axne backing Biden, along with his $4 trillion tax hike to drive more jobs overseas.

(Des Moines Register, 1/25/20)

“Joe Biden’s tax plan would raise taxes by $4 trillion over the coming decade, mostly paid by wealthier taxpayers, the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center estimated Thursday. The analysis shows that the former vice president’s tax agenda is well to the left of past Democratic presidential campaigns. The same group, for instance, projected that Hillary Clinton’s 2016 tax proposal would have increased taxes by $1.4 trillion over a decade.” 

(Washington Examiner, 3/5/20)

“Here are some highlights from Mr. Biden’s tax agenda, along with their economic implications: … Raise the corporate tax rate to 28% from 21%. This would make American companies less competitive globally. Add in state corporate taxes—up to 8.84% in California, 11.5% in New Jersey, 9.5% in Illinois—and many businesses would face a top tax rate in the high 30s. In the European Union, the average top statutory rate is 21.8%, according to a Tax Foundation report last week. The Biden increase would vault the U.S. corporate rate back to near the top in the developed world.”
