(Worthy News) – The White House said Monday that Republicans are wrong to claim that Democratic legislation would increase taxes for those earning less than $400,000 annually.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters that it is the administration’s view that the tax and spending bill would not increase the tax burden for the middle class, although recent modeling seems to contradict that. Jean-Pierre said key data were left out of the calculation.

Last week, it was revealed that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) had signed on to the healthcare, tax, and climate reconciliation proposal, dubbed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. Since then, Republicans have come out in full-throated opposition and asked the Joint Committee on Taxation to analyze some of the details of the plan. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
