Targeting the middle-class is just plain wrong

Omaha, NE – Brad Ashford released the following statement addressing Congressman Don Bacon’s vote for the Republican tax plan:

“Rather than looking out for the middle class and hardworking Nebraskans, Representative Bacon just voted for a tax plan that hikes taxes on the middle class in order to give excessive tax cuts to the ultra-wealthy and big corporations. This is wrong and not how we conduct ourselves in Nebraska,” Ashford said. “In my time in office, I didn’t look to slash Medicare, Medicaid, raise taxes on the middle class and explode the deficit. This vote exemplifies the fundamental difference between Bacon and me. While Bacon votes along party lines, regardless of the harm it will inflict on middle-class families, I fight to protect hardworking Nebraskans. The issue of who looks out for Nebraska will be front and center throughout this campaign, and I will stand on the right side of history.”
