Senator Bernie Sanders' so called “infrastructure” plan puts the future of Iowa family farms in danger. This proposal dramatically increases taxes on families looking to pass their farm to their children.
Tax hikes like these deter those in agriculture from upgrading facilities, purchasing new equipment, and reinvesting in their operations, which harms suppliers and manufacturers. A recent study showed that a hike to the tax code like this would destroy over 80,000 jobs a year for a decade!
We can rebuild our economy, make improvements to infrastructure, and address other critical needs without massive tax increases and trillions in new spending– and without hurting those in agriculture.
In addition to putting family farms in danger, this $3.5 TRILLION plan has little to do with infrastructure.
• Very little goes to roads and bridges.
• Historic, $2.75 trillion in tax hikes that will hurt small businesses & family farms.
• More than $1 trillion in sweetheart deals and carveouts for special interests.
Agriculture is an economic engine for our state and I’m counting on you to protect Iowa family farms by voting NO on this reckless tax and spend bait and switch.
