NCFE Launches Billboard Highlighting the Tax Scam’s Impact on Workers

BILLBOARD NEAR SITE OF NASH COUNTY LAYOFFS HOLDS CONGRESSMAN GEORGE HOLDING ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS SUPPORT OF TRUMP TAX SCAM ON WORKING FAMILIES

Kroger’s latest news adds to growing evidence that Tax Plan Is Not Working

Raleigh, NC – Highlighting the failure of the Trump/Holding Tax Scam, North Carolinians for a Fair Economy has unveiled a billboard on US Highway 64 West near the site of a business that permanently laid off 105 workers.

Southeast Service Corporation in Nash County reported 105 permanent layoffson February 12, 2018.  In addition, Kroger announced on June 13, 2018 that it would close all of its stores in the Triangle, resulting in 1,500 employees losing their jobs.

After voting for a tax-cut law that will give away $1.9 trillion in tax cuts to the richest Americans and wealthiest corporations, Congressman George Holding continues to cite bogus GOP talking points that “the tax cuts are working.” Holding takes credit for lower unemployment, minimum wage increases, investment in affordable housing, and job creation. In truth, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projects the tax cut will hurt low-income Americans, disproportionately benefit the wealthy, increase the annual deficit to $1 trillion next year, and result in spending cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security in order to pay for it.

Congressman Holding voted with the GOP to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He voted for the #TrumpHoldingTaxScam that benefits big corporations, millionaires, and billionaires. Working families and children in Congressional District 2 are left behind while Holding enriches himself and his wealthy friends.
