Pelosi Statement on GOP Tax Scam for The Rich 2.0 Framework

Press Release
Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement after House Republicans released a 2-page framework of promises for the second wave of their GOP Tax Scam for the rich:

“We’ve seen this scam before. Republicans make a bunch of empty promises to the middle class and then write a bill that ultimately hands 83 percent of the tax cuts to the wealthiest 1 percent.

“Republicans want to explode the deficit with even more unpaid-for tax breaks for the wealthiest, so they can force devastating cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.  Families are drowning beneath stagnant wages, higher health premiums and soaring prescription drug prices, but the GOP continues to prioritize their tax breaks for Wall Street, Big Pharma, and corporations shipping American jobs overseas.

“The GOP Tax Scam for the rich 2.0 looks to be just as destructively tilted toward the wealthiest 1 percent as the original.”
