DGA Calls on Hogan To End Silence on GOP Congressional Tax Bill

Congress Votes Today on Tax Bill that Would Raise Taxes on Maryland Middle-Class Families; Governor Hogan Remains Silent

As Congress prepares to vote today on a bill to increase taxes on Maryland middle-class families, Governor Larry Hogan has remained silent. Today, the Democratic Governors Association called on Hogan to announce his position on the bill. 

According to a nonpartisan analysis, families earning less than $75,000 would see their taxes increase under this bill by 2027, while families earning millions of dollars annually would receive large tax breaks.

“Maryland voters deserve a governor who will put Maryland first, but Governor Hogan refuses to take a stand on this critical bill that will raise taxes on middle-class Marylanders and blow up the national debt by $2 trillion,” said DGA Communications Director Jared Leopold. “It’s time for Governor Hogan to say where he stands on the Congressional GOP tax bill. By refusing to speak out against this tax plan, Governor Hogan has made clear where his priorities really lie.”
