Senators Sinema and Kelly, Arizonans Need Your Vote

A new poll from Hart and ALG Research shows that Arizonans overwhelmingly support paying for the critical needs of the state’s working families by ensuring the wealthy and corporations pay their fair share in taxes. The polling comes as the US Senate took the first steps this morning toward approving a $3.5 trillion budget resolution to set the stage to begin the budget reconciliation process to pass the human infrastructure package of President Biden's Build Back Better plan. The plan would increase opportunities for high-quality, affordable early childhood education; cut child poverty in half with the Child Tax Credit expansion; make health care, child care, eldercare and housing more affordable for working families, and is primarily paid for by raising taxes on the rich and corporations. People making less than $400,000 a year will not pay more in taxes.

The Arizona poll, conducted from July 13 to July 19, surveyed 500 registered voters with a 4.5% margin of error. Some of its key findings include:

  • Two-thirds (65%) of Arizona voters support President Biden’s American Families Plan, which is essentially Biden’s Build Back Better Plan, and 68% see his proposals to raise taxes on the wealthy and corporations as a strong reason to support it.
  • Biden’s proposals to raise taxes on those making over $400,000 meet with wide approval (71% support) in Arizona, including his proposal to tax capital gains at the same rate as income from wages (61% support). Arizona voters believe that raising taxes on those earning $400,000 or more will help the economy by a 35-point margin.
  • Increasing the corporate tax rate to 28% is embraced by 62% of Arizona voters, who also favor taxing foreign profits at 28% (66% support) and setting a minimum corporate tax rate of 15% (69% support).

As lawmakers begin the budget reconciliation process that will allow Biden’s Build Back Better agenda to pass with 50 votes, please send Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly a note to express your support of the wealthy and corporations paying their fair share.
