Pelosi Statement on Text of GOP Tax Scam for The Rich 2.0
Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement following the unveiling of legislative text for the second round of the GOP tax scam for the rich:
“After handing massive unpaid-for tax breaks to Big Pharma, Wall Street and the wealthiest 1 percent with the first GOP tax scam for the rich, House Republicans are here with more of the same.
“With version 2.0 of the GOP tax scam for the rich, Republicans want to add even more to the deficit, and even more to the bank accounts of the wealthiest 1 percent. Then, Republicans will use the massive deficit from their tax scam to justify ransacking the Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security that seniors and working families rely on.
“Yet again, House Republicans are working to pad the pockets of the wealthy and well-connected at the expense of hard-working working men and women.”
