Schumer Statement on President Trump’s Tax Outline

April 26, 2017

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today released the statement in response to President Trump’s tax outline:

“At a time when income distribution is getting even worse in America, the President’s outline clearly makes life easier for the wealthy and special interests and makes life harder for middle class and lower income Americans. It couldn’t come at a worse time.

“Clearly, the President and those at his level of wealth would benefit while tens of millions of American families are hurt.

“This plan will be roundly rejected by taxpayers of all political stripes. The American people, once again, are learning that what President Trump promised in his campaign and what he’s doing are totally at odds.”
