Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) voted against the Republican tax plan, which a recent study by the Tax Policy Center found would overwhelmingly benefit the very top income earners. The Tax Policy Center found that by 2027, 83 percent of the tax benefits in the Republican tax plan would go to the top 1 percent.

"I support real tax reform that starts with middle class families and small businesses," said Congresswoman Kuster. "Unfortunately, the plan forced through Congress by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell is a missed opportunity that overwhelmingly benefits corporate special interests at the expense of the majority of Americans. The fact that provisions for the middle class expire while those for corporate special interests are permanent makes clear Congressional Republicans' priorities."
