Statement on U.S. Senate Tax Plan from Alexandra Sirota, Budget & Tax Center Director

The tax plan, passed today out of committee, now moves to the U.S. Senate floor. It will deliver the greatest benefit to the rich, raise taxes on many middle- and low-income taxpayers, and grow the federal deficit.  The harm to North Carolina will be felt in every community as an estimated 400,000 North Carolinians lose health insurance and investments are cut that connect people to jobs, connect businesses to markets, and strengthen our economy.  North Carolina’s Congressional delegation must slow down their rush to pass an overhaul of the tax code that benefits so few and ensure that federal tax policy is not paving the way for more harm to our state.
