Senate Republicans Should Be Ashamed For Ignoring the Wellbeing of Their Constituents, Voting To Raise Taxes On 87 Million Middle-Class Families

Voters From Across The Country Vow To Hold Elected Officials Accountable

Thursday, November 30, 2017


Washington D.C. — Today, following the passage of Senate Republicans’ disastrous tax proposal that would raise taxes on middle class families, cut essential programs, and increase the deficit in order to give the wealthy a tax cut, Tax March Executive Director Nicole Gill released the following statement:

“In voting to give a tax break for millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations, Senate Republicans have made an enemy for themselves in their own constituents. As a result of this monstrous bill, 87 million middle-class families would pay more in taxes so that Republicans can reward their rich donors with even more unearned tax breaks. Not only would working families see their own taxes go up, this bill threatens massive cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and critical funding for programs that hardworking Americans rely on. Senators who voted for this scheme should be ashamed and will not avoid the repercussions from voters – we won’t forget.”
