How to go: Bernie Sanders in Dayton today for rally against tax plan


U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who ran for president last year as a Democrat, will lead a rally in Dayton at noon on Saturday against the Republican tax reform proposal now pending in the U.S. Senate.

Sanders will appear at the Dayton Masonic Center, 525 W. Riverview Ave., with two progressive groups, Not One Penny and MoveOn.org Civic Action.

“The tour is the latest effort by progressive activists to stop the Republican plan to raise taxes on working families,” according to a news release issued by Robyn Patterson, spokesperson for Not One Penny.

The group says the Republican tax plan would lead to tax increases for more than 87 million middle class families.

On Tuesday the Senate Budget Committee approved the GOP plan and sent it to the floor.

The U.S. House earlier approved a tax reform proposal with no Democratic support.

President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress contend the House version and the one pending in the Senate will provide tax cuts for everyone and give businesses a boost that will create jobs. Democrats say both bills favor the rich and businesses at the expense of middle class people, will lead to budget cuts and will add about $1.5 trillion to the U.S. deficit over 10 years.
