Republican Plan for Tax Reform 2.0 Would Help Millionaires and Billionaires, Hurt America
"Kevin Brady and his colleagues apparently feel the need to double down on their losing hand."
WASHINGTON - This afternoon, in response to House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) releasing details about House Republicans' Tax Reform 2.0 bill which they plan to mark up in committee next week, the Patriotic Millionaires issued the following statement:

The media landscape is changing fast
Our news team is changing too as we work hard to bring you the news that matters most.
Change is coming. And we've got it covered.
As if last year's $1.5 trillion handout to the wealthy wasn't enough, today's outline of their Tax Reform 2.0 includes a provision that would permanently enrich American millionaires. Their 'small business' tax cut would give billions of dollars in tax benefits to millionaires and billionaires who abuse accounting loopholes to register their personal income as a small business, all while employing no one but themselves. The 'small business' pass-through tax cut would overwhelmingly benefit Americans making over $1 million per year, with the top 1% of small businesses reaping most of the law's benefits. When 40% of Americans have trouble making enough money to cover even their basic needs, it's ridiculous for House Republicans to make a second round of tax cuts for millionaires their legislative priority."
