Wasserman Shultz on GOP Tax Scam Bill
U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement in response to the passage of a Republican tax bill that Democrats united in voting against today:
"The revolting tax plan passed by Republicans today is an underhanded assault on hard-working Americans. It gives huge breaks to the ultra-wealthy and corporations, raises taxes on millions of middle class families, while exploding the deficit by $1.5 trillion. With little vetting or debate, this GOP tax scam puts funding for middle class priorities such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, education and veterans programs seriously at risk. Worse, Senate Republicans are seeking to sabotage the Affordable Care Act as part of this GOP tax swindle. Today, the House passed a deficit explosion device that rewards the Republican donor class and punishes the rest of us. A massive tax handout for big business that undercuts affordable health care is the last thing Americans want or need."
