Yarmuth Statement on GOP Tax Scam 2.0

Jul 24, 2018

Washington, D.C. – Kentucky Congressman John Yarmuth, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement after House Republicans released the framework for the second phase of the GOP tax plan:

“Exploding our deficits by nearly $2 trillion with tax cuts that overwhelmingly benefit the rich isn’t enough for House Republicans. Now they want to enact another round of unpaid for tax cuts that will add an additional $650 billion to our debt, and lead to Republican demands for even deeper cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. The American people have rejected the first GOP tax scam. They’re not about to fall for this one. “
