Senate Dems’ Campaign Arm to Go ‘On Offense’ on … Tax Cuts Benefiting Millions

The Senate Democrats' nonprofit arm seems to think campaigning against the tax cuts – which are putting more money in Americans' pockets – is a good electoral strategy.

Senate Dems’ Campaign Arm to Go ‘On Offense’ on … Tax Cuts Benefiting Millions

The “nonprofit arm” of Senate Majority PAC, which supports Democratic efforts to retake the U.S. Senate, will go “on offense” with the GOP tax cuts in 2018, according to a new report from The Hill.

From The Hill‘s Lisa Hagen:

Majority Forward, the nonprofit arm of the Democratic Senate Majority PAC, is going on offense with a digital ad campaign in 10 states as it seeks to frame the GOP’s tax plan as a handout to corporations and the wealthy.

The ad campaign, which was provided first to The Hill, signals how Democrats plan to campaign against the tax overhaul in the 2018 midterms. Majority Forward unveiled the digital ads on Tuesday, arguing that the tax plan doesn’t prioritize the middle class and could have negative ramifications on the debt and Medicare.

States targeted include eight where Democrats are up for re-election: Ohio (Sherrod Brown), North Dakota (Heidi Heitkamp), Florida (Bill Nelson), Montana (Jon Tester), Indiana (Joe Donnelly), Wisconsin (Tammy Baldwin), West Virginia (Joe Manchin), and Missouri (Claire McCaskill).

It’s a curious strategy, especially as the tax cuts get more popular in competitive U.S. House races, for example. The tax cuts could be more popular in part because Americans are starting to see a bump in their paychecks as a result of the GOP tax bill.

Some Democrats are taking the campaign a step further, pledging to repeal and replace the tax cuts if they take back Congress in 2018. Sound familiar?
