Biden’s capital gains tax plan an 'assault on small businesss': Rep. Meuser

Raising US taxes now ‘won’t work’: Congressman

Rep. Dan Meuser, R-Pa., on Presidents Biden’s tax plans. 

Rep. Dan Meuser, R-Pa., argued that President Biden's capital gains tax plan is an "assault on small business" on FOX Business’ "Mornings with Maria."
