Tom Perez on Republican “Tax Reform”
August 1, 2017
Ahead of President Trump’s small business roundtable and as Trump and Republicans in Congress prepare to reveal their tax plan, DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:
“Democrats want real tax reform that will make sure the wealthy and big corporations pay their fair share. But all President Trump, Mike Pence, and Republicans in Congress are offering is a fraud tax plan that provides more giveaways to millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations at the expense of American working families. This is the same tired Republican approach of top-down economics that hasn’t worked in the past, and it won’t work now.
“This is just the latest Republican attack on working families. From pushing cuts in health care and Social Security to education and infrastructure, Republicans in Congress are determined to take economic security away from millions just to pay for more tax breaks for those at the very top. But Democrats are standing up for American families at every turn. And we will continue to fight for a fair tax plan that prioritizes middle and lower-income families over the richest Americans.”
