Passage of GOP Tax Scam Puts the Well-Being of Millions in Peril

In response to the passage of the House Republican tax plan, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04), Ranking Member of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade, issued the following statement:

“We’ve been down this road before.

“Once again, Speaker Paul Ryan and his Republican House colleagues are taking a victory lap around Capitol Hill at the expense of America’s working- and middle-class. Once again, the health care of millions — including children, the disabled, and those battling poverty —  is in jeopardy in an effort to appease President Trump and his party’s wealthiest donors. And once again, the country now looks to the Senate to reject this dangerous proposal and find the humanity that all too often eludes their counterparts in House.

“Let us hope that common-sense once again triumphs over arrogance and self-indulgence.”
