FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 18, 2018
New York, New York -- U.S. Senate candidate Chele Farley (R, C, Reform) today issued the following statement in response to New York's lawsuit against the federal government over the cap on the state and local tax (SALT) deduction for federal filers:
"New Yorkers pay some of the highest taxes in America and are being treated unfairly. Today's lawsuit is more a political statement than legal test and is not likely to be successful, nor does it do anything to address the root cause of the problem which is a crushing tax burden levied by state and local governments."
"What New Yorkers need is less rhetoric, grandstanding and more hard work. New Yorkers need a Senator in Washington whose only ambition is to put New York first. Kirsten Gillibrand is an absentee Senator who is more focused on leading the resistance for 2020 than being a leader for New York in 2018. She was MIA during the tax-reform negotiations and the result was a bad deal for New Yorkers. As Senator, I will work to restore fairness to our tax code and return the $48 billion we send to Washington and never get back."
Chele Farley is an outsider with over 25 years of experience in the private sector. She is the Republican, Conservative and Reform Party candidate for U.S. Senate. Farley lives in New York City with her husband Richard and their three sons. For more information about U.S. Senate candidate Chele Farley, please visit www.CheleFarleyforSenate.com.
