Casten Promised to Protect SALT Deductions. He Didn’t.

“Seems like Casten is for your family and business right up until they get in the way of big government deals for his family and their business”

Orland Park, IL— In the past, Sean Casten promised he would make sure the state and local tax (SALT) deduction was here to stay. Unfortunately for Illinois taxpayers, when push came to shove, Sean Casten sold them out in favor of subsidies for green energy.

Not only does the Democrats’ new reckless spending spree not restore the SALT deduction, but it will fuel inflation, raise taxes, and increase IRS funding by $80 billion so the agency can hire 87,000 new IRS agents to harass middle-class taxpayers.

Keith Pekau, the GOP nominee for Congress in IL-06,  responded saying, “This is yet another example of Sean Casten selling out his constituents to line his own pockets and help out his political allies. 

Casten’s “green” company has received millions in federal subsidies over the years. The insultingly-titled “anti-inflation” bill guarantees they will continue to line their own pockets with those taxpayer-funded subsidies. Meanwhile, people in Chicagoland pay among the highest property taxes in the nation. And Sean Casten voted away one of their major deductions – a deduction he PROMISED to protect. 

Seems like Casten is for your family and business right up until they get in the way of big government deals for his family and their business. I am sick of self-dealers in Washington putting themselves ahead of the people they are supposed to represent. As mayor, I put people over politics to reduce spending, reduce taxes and improve accountability. I am going to Congress to do the same.”
