Kosciusko County Democrats plan rally against GOP tax legislation

The Kosciusko County Democrats are holding a protest rally in front of the Courthouse this evening. The Chairman of the group tells News Now Warsaw they intend to voice their opposition to the recently passed GOP tax legislation, which they feel will hurt the local economy.

According to the Democrats’ press release, “This legislation will widen the gap between rich and poor, add $1.5 trillion to the national debt, potentially cut $25 billion from Medicare next year, and also leave graduate students with a hefty tax increase as their tuition waivers (much like a scholarship), will now be considered taxable income. Furthermore, as analysis from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office shows, all Americans who earn less than $75,000 will be paying higher taxes by the year 2027.”

The rally begins at 6:30 p.m.
