Yarmuth on Passage of GOP Tax Scam: “A flagrant betrayal of American families and our national interests”
Washington, D.C. – Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement after the House voted again today to pass the Republican tax scam:
“Congressional Republicans just gave final approval to a tax scam that overwhelmingly benefits the wealthy at the expense of middle class families.
“The resulting massive debt hike by these self-proclaimed deficit hawks is no accident. In their irresponsible assault on America’s budget, Republicans have created their long-sought excuse to gut Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, education assistance, and other vital programs that millions of Americans depend on.
“This is a flagrant betrayal of American families and our national interests.”
