KEY TAKEAWAYS: 

  • Biden’s tax hikes will push good-paying jobs overseas. After Republican tax reform, companies – and the jobs they create – came back to the United States.
  • Biden’s tax hikes will increase the cost of living for American families. Experts estimate that the energy mandates included in Biden’s tax hikes will cost American households $1,400 per year.
  • Biden’s tax hikes will result in lower wages and less growth. According to the Tax Foundation, Biden’s tax hikes alone will eliminate 159,000 jobs and reduce wages by 0.7 percent.
