Sen. Paul Statement on Democrats Tax Hike
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Sen. Rand Paul issued the following statement after a vote in the U.S. Senate on a Democrat proposed tax-hike plan:
"It boggles the mind to think that now, during an economic recession, Senate Democrats put forth a plan to raise taxes on nearly a million business owners, farmers, ranchers, and families. Their idea of a tax plan includes damaging tax increases that would severely hurt small businesses and hike the estate tax from 35 percent to 55 percent. Fortunately for the American people, this tax bill is dead upon arrival, as our Constitution requires that all tax bills originate in the House of Representatives, and this one did not."
