Patriotic Millionaires on Senate Tax Bill: "Intellectually and Morally Bankrupt"
"A slap in the face to middle class Americans."
WASHINGTON - Today, in response to the official release of the GOP Senate Tax Bill, the Patriotic Millionaires issued the following statement:
"The tax plan released today by Senate Republicans is intellectually and morally bankrupt. It is nothing less than a slap in the face to middle class Americans. Just like the House bill, it gives massive, unnecessary, and economically indefensible cuts to the wealthiest individuals and corporations in this country, while leaving working and middle class Americans stuck with the bill. This bill's sponsors are selling out the American people to please their billionaire donors, and they should be ashamed."
