Texas Democrats Launch New Digital Ad in Opposition to Republican Sales Tax Hike

Austin, TX — Today, The Texas Democratic Party launched a new digital ad targeting vulnerable Texas Republicans in opposition to the Republican sales tax increase.

The Republican sales tax increase will hurt everyday Texans, such as seniors living on fixed incomes, families already struggling to buy clothes for their growing children, and college students working multiple jobs while going to school.

Texas Democratic Party Spokesperson Brittany Switzer issued the following statement:

“Seniors living on fixed incomes, families already struggling to buy clothes for their growing children, and college students working multiple jobs cannot afford yet another tax hike from Texas Republicans. Raising the sales tax remains dead wrong.

“Today and every day, the Texas Democratic Party is fighting back and fighting against any sales tax hike on our hardworking families and businesses. We know the best ways to lower taxes for Texas families and small businesses is to increase the homestead exemption, increase the state’s share of public education, close corporate loopholes, and make billionaires pay their fair share. That’s how we create a thriving middle-class economy.

“Texas Democrats are taking the fight directly to the people. Together, we will stop this Republican sales tax increase and hold Republicans accountable on the ballot in November 2020.”
