Tom Perez on Senate Budget Committee Passing Tax Hike on Majority of Americans

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after Republicans moved their tax plan out of the Senate Budget Committee without a single Democratic vote:

“This bill was written for Donald Trump and his wealthy friends, not for hardworking American families. It would hurt workers and homeowners, teachers and older Americans; it would take away health insurance from millions and make it harder for people to save for retirement. In fact, while Republicans try to give big corporations and the top 1% another massive windfall, their plan would raise taxes on at least half of Americans. Democrats believe that we should reform our tax system to work better for the middle class. And we will fight tooth-and-nail to make sure this bill never makes it to Donald Trump’s desk.”
