McGovern Blasts Passage of Republican Tax Bill

Wednesday, December 20, 2017

 

Jim McGovern

Congressman Jim McGovern is blasting the passage of the Republican tax bill calling it a “Christmas gift”  for President Donald Trump, his family, and their “wealthy friends.”

McGovern also blasted Speaker Paul Ryan because he “ jammed this tax bill through the House.”

McGovern released the following statement

“President Trump, his family, and their wealthy friends got an early Christmas gift this year. This Republican tax bill will line their pockets and the pockets of their donors – giving the vast majority of tax breaks to those at the top and corporations shipping American jobs overseas, all the while exploding the deficit and raising taxes on hardworking Massachusetts families. 86% of the tax cuts contained in this bill go to the wealthiest 1%.

Even worse, Speaker Paul Ryan jammed this tax bill through the House with zero hearings, zero input from Democrats, and almost no time for anyone to review the bill before we voted on it.

The American people will remember this as the moment that their economic future was auctioned off to the highest bidder. We need real, bipartisan tax reform that focuses on the middle class and those struggling in poverty.”
