Whitehouse Statement on Senate Passage of TrumpTax

Washington, DC – Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) released the following statement on the passage of Republicans’ tax proposal:

“TrumpTax is a scam.  Tonight, while most Americans were sleeping, Senate Republicans voted to hike taxes on millions of middle-class families to pay for tax cuts for President Trump and his billionaire friends.  This so-called ‘tax reform’ moves our nation in the wrong direction by every measure: it will send more American jobs overseas, increase health insurance premiums, explode our national debt, and pollute an already-complicated tax code with new loopholes and gifts for the very wealthy.  It’s a giveaway to Republican donors, and the American people should take note.”
