Republican Tax Law Shortchanges Workers & Our Economy

GOP Tax Law
Republicans enacted partisan legislation that provides massive tax breaks to the wealthiest while leaving middle-class families behind and adding trillions of dollars to the deficit.
Instead of working with Democrats on bipartisan, comprehensive tax reform, Republicans enacted partisan legislation that neither helps the middle class nor promotes fiscal responsibility.  Their tax law provides massive tax breaks to the wealthy and big corporations while raising taxes on everyone else after the first few years.  83% of the benefits of this law go to the wealthy and corporations; only 17% goes to working families.  Moreover, the GOP tax law contributes to raising the deficit by more than a trillion dollars every year for the next decade.
Republicans jammed their legislation through Congress without hearings or allowing Americans to provide input about how it shortchanges middle-class families.  Now that it has been enacted, everyone can see that it hasn’t dramatically benefited the middle class or small businesses and that it’s bringing further strain to our nation’s finances, which Republicans will use to justify slashing Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
Democrats will continue working to promote the principles of fair, bipartisan tax policies that benefit the middle class and don’t explode the deficit.  Furthermore, as Republicans now turn to their plan to gut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid in order to offset the deficits their tax law created, Democrats will stand firm in defending these programs so they can benefit Americans today and in the future.

As a few may know, we have a colloquy between the Majority Leader and myself about the schedule for the coming week and we are very concerned, of course, about what’s going to be brought to the Floor to solve the DACA issue which the President asked us to solve so many months ago, and to preclude childrens being traumatized in a way which may well have permanent damage to them, not to mention their parents.

This week, House Republicans brought two deeply flawed bills to the Floor. The first was their hypocritical rescissions package, which would rescind funding for priorities like children’s health in an attempt to look fiscally responsible.
First, let me say, I heard the Gentleman from Georgia’s argument that this money wasn't needed.  I heard that argument a month ago: Ebola money was not needed.  Guess what?  Ebola money was needed.
