Dec 15, 2017 Issues: Economy and Jobs

(Queens, NY) — House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on the tax bill released tonight by congressional Republicans:

“It’s hard to fathom how Republicans can justify so severely undercutting the financial security of middle-class families and working Americans just so corporate special interests can see a tax break. But time and time again, Republicans were given the opportunity to help students, seniors, families, and veterans and they opted to instead fill the coffers of their GOP donors.

“This is a shameful bill.”
