Don Bolduc Supports A National Sales Tax That Would Increase Taxes On The Middle Class By $3,200 A Year

Thursday, October 27, 2022

Don Bolduc is taking one of the most unpopular positions among voters — regardless of party — in New Hampshire: He wants every Granite Stater to pay a national sales tax, and said it’s something “we need.” Bolduc supports the so-called “Fair Tax,” which would increase taxes on the middle class by an average of $3,200 per year and replace federal income taxes with a 23 percent national sales tax on all purchases — even gas, health care, and rent.

Get the facts on Bolduc’s record of supporting a national sales tax:
