Fletcher Admits Her Support For Raising Property Taxes

One of the reasons that Texas continues to be one of the best places in America to raise a family, start a business, and live comfortably is our low tax burden. We keep Texas affordable by allowing you to keep more of your hard-earned cash instead of forking it over to the government.

Most of us here in the 7th District understand that we already pay our fair share of taxes.  That’s why I could not believe my eyes when I saw Congresswoman Fletcher sign a letter admitting that she supports increasing property taxes on middle-class families.

In a letter sent to Governor Abbott on May 13th, Congresswoman Fletcher along with other liberal Democrats such as Sheila Jackson Lee agreed that “We all believe in raising property taxes when times are good”.

And what’s even worse, this admission comes on the heels of Congresswoman Fletcher and Democrats in the House passing a $3 trillion spending bill that sends up to $6,000 checks to illegal immigrants.

Despite her carefully rehearsed talking points, occasionally Fletcher slips up and shows her true colors. Those colors are Nancy Pelosi’s, and when Pelosi pushes for socialist schemes like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal, Fletcher will support tax increases on middle-class families to pay for them.

Tax and spend policies hurt middle-class families and small businesses in our district and Lizzie Fletcher proved once again that she is not the moderate she claimed to be in 2018.

When I’m elected to Congress, I promise to fight against wasteful spending and the middle-class tax increases that come with it. Unlike Lizzie Fletcher, I’ll put our priorities, not those of Nancy Pelosi, first.
