November 7, 2017

Washington, D.C. Since unveiling their tax proposal, Republicans have openly admitted that middle class Americans could see tax hikes rather than tax relief under the GOP tax plan. While the GOP plan gives massive tax breaks to special interests and large corporations, Republicans admit that they aim to do so on the backs of hardworking people. Senate Democrats today said any plan that increases taxes on middle income people in order to give special interests and corporations massive tax cuts will be met dead on arrival with the American people.
