Whitehouse Statement on Republican Tax Plan

Washington, DC – Today, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, released the following statement on Republicans’ tax reform proposal, which was released today:

“Republicans once again seek massive tax breaks for billionaires that would add trillions to the national debt, and threaten Medicare, Social Security, and programs middle-class Rhode Islanders rely on.  They don’t end incentives that encourage corporations to send American jobs overseas.

“You’d think Republicans would have learned from the failure to repeal Obamacare not to jam things through Congress on a party-line vote.  Why not, as John McCain suggested, try regular order and work across the aisle.  There is a bipartisan way to fix our broken tax code.  I hope Republicans consider it.”
