Harlem Congressman Adriano Espaillat Statement On The Republican Tax Bill

December 19, 2017

Congressman Adriano Espaillat released the following statement after House Republicans voted to advance the GOP tax bill:

“I voted no on the Republicans’ tax bill that will raise taxes on tens of millions of middle class families in my district and in communities around the nation. The GOP tax scam hands deficit-exploding giveaways to the wealthiest and corporations shipping jobs overseas,” said Rep. Espaillat. “The final assessment from the non-partisan Tax Policy Center shows the GOP tax scam will raise taxes on a staggering 86 million middle class households, giving 83 percent of its tax cuts to the wealthiest one percent. This disastrous tax plan hurts middle class families and the future of our economy. My constituents want and deserve real, bipartisan tax reform that puts them first by creating better jobs, better wages, and securing a stronger future. Today’s vote to advance the Republican tax bill is not the solution.”
