“NH Tax Twins” Digital Campaign Targeting Tax-Loving Duo Dan Feltes & Andru Volinsky

Bottom line: no matter which out-of-touch liberal the Democrats nominate this year, there is a 100% guarantee they will raise taxes on working families and put the Granite State’s recovery at risk.

Per the RGA:

Live Free PAC, an organization supported by the Republican Governors Association (RGA), today released a digital campaign branding Democratic gubernatorial candidates Dan Feltes and Andru Volinsky as New Hampshire’s liberal “Tax Twins.”

The campaign includes a new website, NHTaxTwins.com, and a digital ad exposing Feltes’ and Volinsky’s tax-hiking records.

Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, with small businesses and jobs at risk, Feltes and Volinsky both backed a punishing 12 percent tax hike on New Hampshire’s struggling job creators.

Feltes voted for a payroll tax hike, described by many as equivalent to an “income tax,” as well as a budget that included more than $134 million in higher taxes and fees in 2019. Feltes has stated his support for Elizabeth Warren’s “wealth tax” and opposes the federal tax cuts passed in 2017.

Volinsky is even more extreme. He has refused to take the pledge to veto a broad-based tax and stated that he is open to a sales tax, an income tax, and a statewide property tax for New Hampshire families. As a longtime supporter of Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, Volinsky backs Medicare For All and the Green New Deal – both of which would require staggering tax increases for Granite Staters.

“New Hampshire’s Tax Twins Dan Feltes and Andru Volinsky are so blindly committed to taxing small businesses and working families that they are doubling down on tax hikes as Granite Staters struggle to make ends meet. From raising taxes on small businesses recovering from COVID-19 losses to backing Bernie Sanders’ and Elizabeth Warren’s extreme agenda, the Tax Twins would seriously jeopardize New Hampshire’s economic recovery if they get their way,” said RGA Communications Director Amelia Chassé Alcivar. “Bottom line: no matter which out-of-touch liberal the Democrats nominate this year, there is a 100% guarantee they will raise taxes on working families and put the Granite State’s recovery at risk.”
