WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today issued the following statement after Senate Republicans passed partisan tax legislation:

“I think we need to make our tax system simpler and fairer for hard working Wisconsin families, small businesses and manufacturers, but this partisan legislation fails to do that. This is largely a tax giveaway to the wealthiest few, big corporations and Wall Street while millions of middle class families will get a tax hike. We should do right by Wisconsin’s middle class families and reward their hard work, but this legislation rewards the top 1% and Republicans have put people’s health care on the chopping block to pay for it. That’s not right and it’s not fair.”
