Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement on today's vote by the House of Representatives to pass the Republican tax plan:
"Today's vote is a missed opportunity to deliver the tax reform we need for middle class families and small businesses. I strongly support reform that starts with the goal of providing tax relief for those in the economy who need it most. This bill is little more than a giveaway to big corporate interests and wealthy individuals while creating losers among many middle class families who will see their taxes increase in the coming years. The bill is particularly damaging for students with college debt, seniors with high medical bills, and hospitals, colleges, and communities that rely on tax exempt bonds."
"I urge my Republican colleagues to abandon their partisan efforts and work in a unified way to provide tax relief that starts with the middle class."
