Democrat Joe Biden pledged he wouldn't raise taxes on anyone earning less than $400,000 a year, but due to his history of breaking promises, voters are skeptical, according to a new poll.

As the cost of sweeping new federal spending becomes more obvious, electorates are becoming worried.

According to Scott Rasmussen and RMG Research survey, 61% of registered voters believe Biden will increase taxes on middle-class Americans despite his promise not to.

Twenty-seven percent said they believed it would be unlikely Biden would increase taxes, and 12% said they were unsure.

83% of Republicans said they believed tax hikes were coming, and almost half of Democrats agreed.

Voters identifying with Biden's party were split:

47% said g a tax increase was likely

44% saying it was not

Forty-four percent of independents expect tax increases, compared to 25% who did not.

The poll surveyed 1,200 people between Aug. 4-9.

The White House claimed Democrats’ spending on infrastructure and families is popular with voters and will help economic growth.

Democrats turned their sights on a multi-trillion budget plan that promises to invest in a historic expansion of social programs.

The package is expected to total more than $3.5 trillion, and no Republicans are expected to back the reconciliation package.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi repeated her promise to hold off on passing the Senate bipartisan infrastructure plan until the Senate sends the reconciliation package through.

In a memo, director of the National Economic Council Brian Deese said both pieces of legislation should be viewed as “long-term investments that are spread over the course of the decade.”

Donald Trump blasted the bipartisan infrastructure bill as “the beginning of the Green New Deal" in a statement released through his Save America PAC.

Trump said:

“This is not an infrastructure bill, this is the beginning of the Green New Deal."

“The bill I proposed, which Mitch McConnell couldn’t do anything with, was pure infrastructure."

"I want what is best for America, not what’s best for the Communist Democrat Party."

"This will be a big victory for the Democrats and will be used against Republicans in the upcoming elections.”
