The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, today called on U.S. Senators Todd Young and Mike Braun to clarify their support for the U.S. Senate Republicans’ 11-point plan – “Rescue America” – to raise taxes on Hoosiers and invoke divisive culture wars across the state. U.S. Senator Rick Scott proclaimed this agenda as the Republicans’ compass for the 2022 elections, and it’s time for Young and Braun to declare whether they support the Republicans’ vision for the Hoosier State.
Republicans in the Indiana General Assembly are already enacting this culture war agenda during the 2022 legislative session – including measures to politicize classrooms, attack innocent minors, and restrict voting rights. The Indiana House of Representatives even approved a tax hike on Hoosiers via House Bill 1002.
“The Indiana Republican Party is the Culture War Party, and it’s time for Todd Young and Mike Braun to say whether they support the 2022 election blueprint to raise taxes on Hoosier families,” said Lauren Ganapini, executive director for the Indiana Democratic Party. “Indiana House Republicans already handed families a tax hike at the worst possible time. The way to solve inflation is through a long-term plan, and it appears Democrats are the only ones who are ready to deliver again for Hoosier families.”
