Schweikert Continues to Support New National Consumption Tax

Republican David Schweikert, a candidate for Congress in Arizona's 5th congressional district, recently re-affirmed his support for a new 23 percent national consumption tax.

"David Schweikert's plan for a new national consumption tax would raise already high gas and food prices by 23 percent and create even more financial hardships for Arizona families," said Yoni Cohen, Western Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. "Schweikert's proposal to increase consumption taxes demonstrates that he is far out of touch with the people of Arizona he seeks to represent."
