The latest tax hike proposal in Washington is set to test the unity of the Democratic party in a major way.
The tax hike is being proposed by President Joe Biden and Senate Democratic leaders as a means for funding Biden’s multi-trillion dollar infrastructure plan. And while most Democrats are in favor of tax hikes for this purpose, some are saying not so fast.
Several of the Democrats that are more centered between party lines are arguing that a tax hike is not the best way to fund the project. The early opposition from such Democratic party members means a major battle is certainly brewing within the party and is set to erupt soon.
So which Democratic party members aren’t falling in line with the tax hikes? And what else do we know about the proposed tax increases so far?
