Meet the Nebraska Lawmaker Gunning To Make His State Income Tax One of the Most Punishing

A Nebraska Democrat running to unseat a Republican in a purple district is gunning to raise income taxes on anybody making more than $100,000, backing a plan that would make Nebraska's income tax rate one of the highest in the country.

Tony Vargas, who is running against incumbent Rep. Don Bacon (R.) for Nebraska’s Second Congressional District, introduced a bill in 2019 that would give Nebraska the fifth-highest state income tax rate in the country, vaulting it ahead of blue states like Vermont.

The plan proved unpopular in Nebraska, where the state legislator never put it up for a vote after it faced steep opposition and where it remains "indefinitely postponed," according to the Nebraska State Legislature’s office.
