The U.S. Senate passed the GOP tax scam by a party line vote of 51-48 and it’s no surprise that such a deceptive bill had to be passed in the middle of the night. The public realizes that this bill amounts to welfare for the rich and a tax increase for everyone else.
New Jersey’s U.S. Senators remained vigilant in the fight against the tax scam, and we thank them for their efforts on behalf of working families.
Vote on GOP Tax Overhaul
RIGHT – Robert Menendez (D-NJ)
RIGHT – Cory Booker (D-NJ)
This bill provides 83% of its benefits to the top 1% of Americans, guts the state and local tax deduction, explodes the deficit, and will result in 13 million more uninsured. To argue that this is middle class tax relief is an insult to all working families.
With the tax scam headed to the president’s desk – pending a procedural vote in the U.S. House – we must stand united in the face of those economic challenges to come. It is only though our collective efforts that we will be able to repair the damage that is being done. Our votes and our voices will continue to make the difference.
