Congressman Price Issues Statement on Passage of House GOP Tax Scam

Press Release

 WASHINGTON, D.C.  (Nov. 16, 2017) – Congressman David Price (D-NC) issued the following statement regarding the passage of the House Republican tax plan.

"Today, House Republicans passed a tax bill that asks working families, students, seniors, and sick people to foot the bill for corporations and the super-rich. If this plan is enacted, 36 million American families would see a tax increase and our nation's deficit would explode upwards of $1.5 trillion over ten years. In North Carolina alone, more than 700,000 households earning less than $136,000 a year would see a tax hike. Rather than crafting a bipartisan plan that supports the middle class, Republicans in Congress have once again embraced the voodoo science of "trickle down economics", hoping giveaways to corporations will somehow benefit average Americans. As this bill moves through the legislative process, I will continue to advocate for real tax reform that increases wages, grows the economy, and protects middle class families."
