Key Point:

We had a real opportunity to prepare our country for the 21st century economy; to support the small and new innovative businesses that are creating jobs when many jobs are getting automated out of existence; to support teachers and education; to invest in our future; to improve our healthcare system; to make sure that the middle class can get ahead, and that corporations and the wealthy pay their fare share. Instead we’ve passed a tax scam that will raise taxes on over 36 million Americans.”

 

Full Transcript:

“I just left the House Chamber after voting on this Republican tax scam, which will raise taxes on millions of middle class Americans.

“The sad thing is we had a real opportunity to prepare our country for the 21st century economy; to support the small and new innovative businesses that are creating jobs when many jobs are getting automated out of existence; to support teachers and education; to invest in our future; to improve our healthcare system; to make sure that the middle class can get ahead, and that corporations and the wealthy pay their fare share.

“Instead we’ve passed a tax scam that will raise taxes on over 36 million Americans. It will lower Medicare payments. It will remove the student loan interest deduction so people like me, who are paying our college loans, we’re not gonna get a break on our taxes anymore.

“There’s so much that we need to be doing for our country, to move our country forward, and instead this plan moves us backwards. So join me in opposing it, and making sure that none of this gets past the Senate.”
