Yes, Virginia, conservatives have saved Christmas….or your Christmas taxes, that is.
According to the Carolina Partnership for Reform:
Based on a study from N. C. Policy Watch, Ned Barnett’s News and Observer says Republican tax reforms have increased taxes for lower-income families.
But they conveniently ignore the nearly 20% cut in the state sales tax rate conservative reformers passed in 2011 which heavily benefits lower and middle-income families. Looking at the bigger picture, all income brackets are saving money.
Everyone saves money, even the poor. How about that Ned?
