(AbsoluteNews.com) – Prior to the 2020 election, Republicans warned that Joe Biden would try to increase taxes if he took office. He even had a plan outlined on his campaign website. Now, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is warning Americans about the likely impact of the Democrats’ infrastructure plan.
On Monday, March 22, McConnell said he’s worried the Democrats’ infrastructure proposal might not be what it claims. He said that it could actually be a “Trojan horse for massive tax hikes” and far-left policies that will kill jobs. The senator said his caucus probably won’t have any “enthusiasm” for it.
Mitch McConnell on a possible bipartisan infrastructure bill:
“I think the Trojan horse will be called ‘infrastructure,' but inside the Trojan horse will be all the tax increases … I don’t think there’s going to be any enthusiasm on our side for a tax increase." pic.twitter.com/fKVNQugyk9

Raising taxes during a pandemic could have a detrimental effect on the fragile economy. It’s not too far-fetched that Democrats might try to sneak provisions for a tax hike into a massive infrastructure bill; it wouldn’t be the first time they’ve added pork. Lawmakers will need to be extra vigilant to protect the American people.
