McEachin Statement on GOP's Tax Scam

December 5, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) issued this statement on his opposition to House Republicans’ tax bill (H.R. 1):

“I voted against sending this bill to conference because the only place we should send this bill is to the garbage.

“Republicans want to continue robbing the American people, raising taxes on millions of hardworking middle-class families to fund massive tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.  Lying to the American people and citing phony ‘trickle-down economics’ to justify this rushed, indefensible plan is irresponsible and will bear long-term consequences for our country. As is, this bill will blow an enormous hole in the federal budget leaving infrastructure, education, healthcare, and many other priorities severely underfunded and at risk.”
