Sinema warned Dems about raising taxes in a recession: “I am unwilling to support any tax policies that would put a break on that type of economic growth, or stall business and personal growth for America’s industries.”
Speaking to the Arizona Chamber of Commerce in April, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema outlined her opposition to tax increases. Please see the transcript and video clip below:
“I had a couple guiding principles that still guide the work that I am doing today.
And first and foremost is that I will only support tax policies that promote growth and economic stability particularly during a time of coming through this pandemic, rising inflation, and what we think is a coming recession.
So I am unwilling to support any tax policies that would put a break on that type of economic growth, or stall business and personal growth for America’s industries.
So I retain that position. Everyone knows it. Some people aren’t happy about it.
But that’s my position. And so if conversations do start again – which I’m not sure if they will or not – I’ll be bringing that position back into the negotiations.”
Sinema also said:
“You all know, the entire country knows that I am opposed to raising the corporate income tax. That was true yesterday and it is true today.”
