Pelosi Names Conferees to GOP Tax Scam Conference


Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi today named House Democrats to serve on a conference committee of the House and Senate versions of the GOP tax scam.

“After forcing the GOP tax scam through the Senate in the dead of night, Republicans want to put the final touches on their brutal betrayal of the American middle class,” said Leader Pelosi.  “House and Senate Republicans are going to conference on a bill that hikes taxes on millions of families and raises health insurance premiums, ships good-paying American jobs overseas and crushes generations to come with exploding debt.”

“The only responsible choice is to abandon this monstrous bill and join Democrats to enact real tax reform that puts the middle class first,” continued Leader Pelosi.  “The American people deserve better than this trickle-down product of carelessness and cruelty.  Hard-working men and women in every corner of the country will hold Republicans accountable if they do not walk away from this disastrous vote to raise taxes on their own constituents.”

The House Democratic Conferees to the conference committee are:

House Committee on Ways and Means

  • Congressman Richard Neal of Massachusetts, Ranking Member
  • Congressman Sander Levin of Michigan
  • Congressman Lloyd Doggett of Texas

House Committee on Natural Resources

  • Congressman Raúl Grijalva of Arizona, Ranking Member

House Committee on Energy and Commerce

  • Congresswoman Kathy Castor of Florida
