Groundwork Responds to House Bill to Extend Trump Tax Cuts for Wealthiest Americans and Biggest Corporations

Today, Groundwork Collaborative’s Executive Director Lindsay Owens released the following statement in response to the introduction of new legislation in the Housee House to permanently extend the Trump tax cuts of 2017:

“It's no surprise that the House majority wants to spend trillions of dollars to extend the Trump tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations – but it's absolute hypocrisy from the same members who are pushing us to a debt limit crisis on claims they care about the deficit. Congress should be working together to invest in worker and family priorities and increase taxes on the rich – not give them another handout.”

The Groundwork Collaborative is dedicated to advancing a coherent and persuasive progressive economic worldview and narrative capable of delivering meaningful opportunity and prosperity for everyone. Our work is driven by a core guiding principle: We are the economy. Groundwork Collaborative envisions an economic system that produces strong, broadly shared prosperity and power for all people, not just a wealthy few.
