Reinventing the system to help workers and the middle class
Senator Casey believes there is no more urgent priority for our Nation than rebuilding the middle class by raising wages and creating good-paying jobs. Our tax system can play a critical role in ensuring that all residents of the Commonwealth have a fair shot at financial stability in today’s economy.
Across our Commonwealth's cities and towns – large and small, urban and rural – Senator Casey has heard a consistent message from Pennsylvanians: too many families are struggling to get ahead while a fraction of the elite reap the benefits of a tax and financial system that rewards the few at the expense of the many.
For too many families, their costs keep going up, but their wages do not keep pace. Senator Casey supports reversing the massive tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy and big corporations passed in 2017, and enacting tax policies to rebuild the middle class, reduce child poverty, lower the costs of child care, and support working parents and opportunities for all Americans.
