Democrats marked Tax Day by putting up ads hitting Republicans over a proposal by Senate leaders to force all Americans to pay income tax, a plan that would raise taxes on tens of millions of people.

“Senate Republicans’ Plan: Raise Your Taxes,” reads the message on billboards in Miami and Orlando near the Florida offices of Rick Scott (R-Fla.)the head of the Senate GOP campaign arm as reported in The Hill.

“If Senate Republicans have their way, hard-working Americans — including seniors, families with children, and individuals making less than $40,000 per year — would all have to pay more when they file their taxes today,” said Nora Keefe, a spokeswoman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

The ads also target Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who is battling to win reelection in November, along with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), a prime target for Democrats.

The billboards are the latest moves from the Senate Democrats to saddle the entire GOP with Scott’s plan, which he issued in his individual capacity, not as an official Republican leader.

Some GOP leaders have sought to distance the party from the entire plan, which would raise taxes and undermine Social Security and Medicare.

“We will not have as part of our agenda a bill that raises taxes on half the American people and sunsets Social Security and Medicare within five years,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said in a statement.
