Critical States Oppose The GOP's Tax Cut Plan
There are five Republican senators who have not yet agreed to vote for the GOP's Tax Plan in the Senate -- Senator Collins (Maine), Senator Corker (Tennessee), Senators Flake and McCain (Arizona), and Senator Johnson (Wisconsin). If the Republicans lose three of those five senators, then their tax plan will fail (just like the effort to repeal Obamacare). That's because the bill gives most of the cuts to corporations and the rich -- something the Democrats cannot support.
Making the pressure on those Republican senators rise is a new poll in three of the four states. Those polls show that voters in Maine oppose the GOP tax plan by 31 points, voters in Arizona by 18 points, and voters in Tennessee by 17 points. Those same voters believe the wealthy are the ones that will benefit the most from the Republican tax plan -- Maine (62%), Tennessee (54%), and Arizona (52%). If these senators vote for the GOP plan, then they will be voting against the wishes of the people in their own states.
These charts reflect the results of a Americans for Tax Fairness / Hart Research Poll done of 400 registered voters in each state -- Maine (November 18-20), Arizona (November 18-21), and Tennessee (November 17-19).
