U.S. Rep. Fred Upton: Struggling Working Families Are Helped By GOP Tax Cut
Is the economy really a good one for working families? U.S. Rep. Fred Upton says yes. Doug Cunningham reports.
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton is bullish on the economy as he campaigns for re-election. So we asked him about the 40 percent of working families in the state struggling to meet a basic needs budget according to Michigan United Ways. What, we asked, would Upton do in a new term to directly help their economy? He says the GOP tax cut of 2017 does directly help these struggling working families.
“It reduced the rates for everybody. It allows to double the personal exemption – the deduction – for folks. Which for the average middle-class taxpayer produces about $3000 more in take-home pay over the course of the year. That’s a good thing.”
