Larson Rejects Another Republican Tax Bill That Leaves Working Americans With The Tab

Press Release

Washington, D.C.  – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement after voting NO on another Republican tax proposal that was jammed through the House of Representatives.

“Once again, the Republicans have steamrolled another tax bill through the House, absent of any public hearings, expert testimony or constructive debate. This last-ditch effort was reminiscent of last year’s GOP tax bill that was created behind closed doors without regular order and in a partisan fashion. Rather than addressing the crucial failure of their tax agenda to provide hard-working, middle-class families any kind of relief, the House Republicans have instead chosen to force this bill through without any regard for the American people.

“The party of so-called fiscal conservatism has now increased the national debt even further with this extra tax bill by more than $100 billion, with no way to pay for it. This bill doubles down on their efforts  to line the pockets of the wealthy with tax breaks at the expense of middle class families and our nation’s deficit,” said Larson.
