Patriotic Millionaires on Tax Cuts 2.0: "We Won't Forget Come November"

"Voting for this legislation is nothing more than a puffed-up political PR stunt"

 

WASHINGTON - Today, after the passage of the "Tax Cuts 2.0" package of legislation in the House, Chair of the Patriotic Millionaires Morris Pearl had the following statement:

Statement from Morris Pearl, Chair of the Patriotic Millionaires:

“Today the GOP doubled down on last year’s giveaway to the donor class known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Tax Cuts 2.0 gives nearly $3 trillion to the wealthiest Americans, and will become yet another excuse for Republicans to slash Medicare and Social Security. At a time when the economy is booming but real wages are stagnant for working Americans, it is unthinkable that the House GOP once again rammed through legislation that will do little for everyday Americans. Voting for this legislation is nothing more than a puffed up political PR stunt. The legislation is actually thinly veiled cuts for the wealthy, not for everyday Americans.

Well House GOP, Americans aren’t fooled. And they won’t forget come November how you voted.
