A corporate giveaway at the expense of working families

November 13, 2017

Last week, Republicans rammed their tax proposal through the House Ways & Means Committee. Despite countless efforts by myself and my colleagues to shine a light on the bill’s broken promises to the middle class, its projected $1.5 trillion addition to our deficit, and the massive tax cut to our country’s wealthiest, Republicans advanced this legislation with no Democratic support.

I wanted to share with you the closing remarks that I gave at the Committee this past Thursday. One thing is clear – this is a great bill for Donald Trump and his enterprises


I’m going to continue fighting against the Ryan-McConnell proposal at every step of the way.
