House Dems propose one of the largest tax increases ever to pay for Bidenís $3.5T spending bill

House Democrats on Monday proposed one of the largest tax increases in U.S. history to pay for President Bidenís $3.5 trillion expansion of the federal safety net.

Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee released an 881-page bill outlining a series of tax hikes and one-time revenue generators they say will ensure Mr. Bidenís big-spending domestic agenda is fully funded.

ďOur proposals allow us to both address our perilously changing climate and create new, good jobs, all while strengthening the economy and reinvigorating local communities,Ē said Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, Massachusetts Democrat.

As part of the proposal, Democrats are eyeing tax hikes across the board, including on individuals and corporations. The proposal calls for:

ē Raising taxes on tobacco products.

ē Hiking the corporate tax rate from 21% to 26.5%.

ē Increasing the capital gains tax from 20% to 25%.

ē Raising the top rate on individuals from 37% to the pre-Trump era high of 39.6%.

Imposing a wealth tax in the form of a 3% surcharge on individuals with income above $5 million.

ē Increasing the minimum tax on foreign income derived by corporations, from 10.5% to 16.6%.
