Schumer: Senate Bill Breaks McConnell Promise That Plan Wouldn’t Raise Taxes on Middle Class

November 10, 2017

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement in response to new analysis showing the Senate Republican tax plan would raise taxes on the middle class:

“Now that the plan is written in black and white, it’s clear that middle-class families, particularly in the suburbs, would be hammered by this bill.

“The Senate bill clearly violates Leader McConnell’s pledge that the Republican plan wouldn’t raise taxes on the middle class.

“Rather than distorting the facts about their plan, Republicans should turn back and work with Democrats on a bipartisan plan.”
