Republicans Demand Democrats Raise Taxes On Poor People Instead Of Corporations

Senate Republicans are demanding that Democrats raise the gas tax, which impacts the poor, than raising taxes on corporations.

Both Sens. Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski both suggested taxing the poor to pay for infrastructure:

The gas tax is a regressive tax because lower-income people spend a higher percentage of their income on gasoline in order to commute to work than wealthy people. Republicans are trying to pass off the cost of infrastructure to the poor and working class.

If Democrats did what Republicans asked and raised the gas tax, Republicans would then turn around and use the increased gas tax against them in the 2022 midterm election. The push by Senate Republicans to tax the poor to pay for infrastructure that corporate America benefits from more than anyone else is a reminder that Republicans will always put corporations ahead of the needs of regular Americans.
