Larson: Trump Administration Doubles Down on Double Taxing CT Middle Class

August 23, 2018
Press Release

Hartford, CT – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) issued the following statement after the Treasury Department released new proposed regulations targeting SALT states:

“The proposed rules by Treasury are yet another attack on states like Connecticut who responsibly sought to protect their residents from the harmful double-taxation provisions included in the Republican tax law. This move will harm hard-working, middle-class families and will restrict the ability of towns from investing in their roads, schools, and emergency services. The Republican tax was a massive giveaway to the wealthiest individuals and corporations and will add trillions to the deficit. How will they pay for this? By targeting blue-states like Connecticut and gutting Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. The Trump Administration should stop attacking Connecticut and focus on fixing their disastrous agenda,” said Larson.
