Later today in the Budget Committee, Senate Republicans are attempting to advance their dangerous plan to cut taxes for the top 1% and asking millions of middle-class Americans to pay for it.
I will be voting NO on this dangerous bill — and if enough of my colleagues join me, we can win this fight before it even starts.
I admit that defeating this bill in committee is a long shot, but a few of my Republican colleagues have already expressed skepticism about this plan — and we have to give this fight everything we’ve got to stop them from throwing working and middle-class families under the bus.
The Republican tax plan would raise taxes on lower-income families over the next decade in order to give massive tax cuts to corporations and the top 1% of Americans. That’s not how you strengthen the middle class.
What’s even more shameful: the details of this plan reveal a direct attack on homeowners, students, lower-income Americans, and small business owners — all of whom are struggling enough already.
All that on top of an estimated 13 million Americans becoming uninsured and premiums going up across the board.
Thanks for all you do.
U.S. Senator, California
