#WhatsAtStake without Republican leadership: Your bigger paycheck

Nov 06, 2018 | Communications •

Democrats like to talk about #WhatsAtStake and being #ForThePeople. Want to know what’s at stake? A booming economy, safer communities, and a strong military.

When everyday Americans look at their bigger paychecks or the “now hiring” signs in their hometowns, they have only one party to thank for that.

Spoiler: it isn’t the Democrats. No, they fought us every step of the way as we worked to help everyone in this country have a chance at a better life. Worse still — they’ve promised to raise taxes and take all of these benefits away from the American people.

90 percent of Americans are seeing bigger paychecks thanks to the new withholding tables under the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. The average family of four received a tax cut of $2,059.

On top of that, more than four million people received more than $4 billion in bonuses as companies invested their own tax cuts into their workers.  

Instead of celebrating with the American people, Democrats looked down on them, calling their bonuses and tax cuts “crumbs.”

While a $1,000 bonus and $2,059 tax cut may be nothing to a millionaire from San Francisco, this extra income gave many families the chance to get ahead when for so long they were barely getting by — that money went towards groceries, bills, saving for a rainy day, or taking a much-needed family vacation.
