Issa Opposes House, Senate Tax Bills
Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Vista) released the following statement announcing his opposition to the Senate-passed tax reform bill which is expected to go to conference committee to be reconciled with the House bill which he voted against in November.
"When I voted against the House tax reform proposal, I did so because I feared that many in my district could face higher taxes under its changes. The Senate bill doesn't do any better," said Congressman Darrell Issa. "California families are already forced to endure some of the highest state sales and income tax rates in the nation -- they deserve to see tax relief too.
I oppose both proposals in their current form and I will continue to fight for tax relief that benefits ALL of our nation's taxpayers -- regardless of where they live. And if such a deal cannot be reached, the bill will not earn my support."
