GOP plan raises taxes on middle class to pay for cuts for corporations and super wealthy
Eagan, MN – Today, Angie Craig released the following statement on the tax “reform” plan Washington Republicans released today.
"Paul Ryan finally released the tax plan that Jason Lewis has been talking up for weeks and it’s just as bad as we thought,” said Craig. “This isn’t real tax reform. This is a giveaway to big corporations and the rich, paid for by tax increases for the middle class.
“I support real tax reform that helps middle class families and small business owners. Let’s use our tax code to encourage companies to invest in their U.S. workforce by closing tax loopholes that move American jobs overseas, and replace them with tax credits for companies that hire Americans. Let’s use this process to help middle class families. We need real tax reform and this isn’t it, but to get there we need real leadership in Washington.
