PENNSYLVANIA – Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy Patton Mills released the following statement ahead of the 2nd anniversary of the GOP Tax Scam, which was signed into law by President Trump on December 22, 2017:
“During a visit to Gettysburg in 2016, then-candidate Trump promised a group of Pennsylvanians that his Administration’s tax agenda would put the middle-class first. Not only did the Administration break that promise, but it did the exact opposite — sign into law a huge giveaway to the ultra-rich and large corporations.
Over the last two years, we have seen our fears about the GOP tax scam confirmed. Washington Republicans promised that their bill would put the middle-class first, but the biggest corporations and the wealthiest Americans now pay a lower tax rate than everyday workers. They promised a boom in business activity, but business investment has slowed.
This was always a shell game meant to stuff the pockets of the wealthiest at the expense of working families, and that’s exactly what we have seen over the last two years. Democrats will continue to fight for policies that actually work for working families, while Trump and his allies will have to answer for their tax scam in 2020.”
