U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Statement on Republican Tax Legislation
"his is largely a tax giveaway to the wealthiest few, big corporations and Wall Street while millions of middle class families will face tax hikes."
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today issued the following statement after House and Senate Republicans passed partisan tax legislation:
“This is largely a tax giveaway to the wealthiest few, big corporations and Wall Street while millions of middle class families will face tax hikes. Powerful corporations get permanent tax breaks, the top 1% will see 83% of the benefits, and Republicans have put people’s health care on the chopping block to pay for it. That’s just not right and it’s not fair. This was a huge missed opportunity to do right by working families in Wisconsin. We should have worked together on bipartisan reform that was focused on the middle class but Republicans chose a go-it-alone approach to deliver a huge gift to those who have too much power and influence in Washington.”
