STATEMENT: House Passage of GOP Tax Plan Shows Republicans’ Disdain for Hardworking Americans

Voters Will Hold Representatives’ Feet to the Fire for Deceiving the American People, Passing a Tax Bill That Devastates Working Families

Thursday, November 16, 2017


Washington D.C. — Today, following the passage of House Republicans’ disastrous tax proposal, Not One Penny spokesman Tim Hogan released the following statement:

“The tax bill that passed the House today is an affront to the people that our leaders in Washington claim to represent. The GOP voted to cut taxes for millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations, inevitably forcing cuts to programs working families depend on like Medicaid, Medicare, public education, and Social Security. While passing the largest middle-class tax hike in a generation, the GOP said ‘no thanks’ to helping working families this Thanksgiving. The tax proposal that passed today is wildly unpopular with a majority of Americans, and voters won’t forget those who enabled this hypocrisy. Republicans’ vote today is one that will haunt them in the weeks and months ahead.”
