Dr. Longjohn makes a statement on Upton-Ryan Tax Plan
Portage, MI – Dr. Matt Longjohn, a public health leader and candidate for Congress in Michigan’s 6th district, today released a statement on the Upton-Ryan Tax Plan.
“The Upton-Ryan tax plan is another way for the Republican party to reward their corporate donors with more tax breaks while shifting even more of the burden onto middle-class Michigan families. I know in my family, and in my community, eliminating the student loan interest deduction, the state and local income tax deductions, and the medical expense deduction, are all going to hurt peoples’ pocketbooks. When I get a chance to represent this district, my votes will always be based on the best interests of the people of the districts, not of corporate donors or party bosses.”
