Granny Tax is a false attack

Hugh Shine often visits with his mother-in-law at a nursing home in Belton. The claim that I supported a "Granny Tax" is absolutely false.

During the session, I supported a bill that would help nursing home operators recover federal dollars through a new program. The bill specifically stated that the operators are forbidden from passing the cost of the program onto residents.

The “granny tax” claim was even debunked during the session. You can read about it here:

When these dark money groups suggest I would do anything to hurt seniors - seniors like my mother-in-law (pictured here) who lives in a local assisted living home, it crosses the line. Shame on you for scaring seniors!

Please SHARE and help me set the record straight.
