The U.S. Senate is expected to soon vote on an amendment to the Obamacare reconciliation bill that will increase taxes on families and small businesses by as much as $10 billion. ATR urges all Senators to VOTE NO on this amendment.

Senator Patty Murray’s (D-Wash.) amendment (no.2876) creates this tax under the guise of individuals paying their “fair share.” The amendment creates a 30 percent tax on any income earned over $1 million.

If this were a stand-alone bill, it would violate ATR’s taxpayer protection pledge. All Senators should vote no on Sen. Murray’s new 30 percent, $10 billion tax.
