In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), member of the Senate Finance Committee, outlined how Biden's $2.7 trillion tax hikes will slash paychecks, raise prices, and kill American jobs.
Republicans and Democrats agree that rebuilding America's infrastructure is important.
Republican tax cuts brought investment back to the United States and unleashed record job and wage growth.
Foreign competitors are lowering their tax rates.
Blue-collar Americans and working families will bear the brunt of Biden's tax hikes.
Read the full op-ed here. An excerpt is below:
'Instead of a $2.7 trillion plan that goes way beyond any definition of infrastructure and is paid for with tax hikes on workers and the economy, let's go back to the proven model: a bipartisan bill focused on real infrastructure with sensible funding mechanisms. Partisan tax hikes will only make America uncompetitive again, hurting American workers and their families.'
