Yarmuth Statement on Text of GOP Tax Scam 2.0

Sep 11, 2018

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

"The Republicans are pushing GOP Tax Scam 2.0 to once again benefit the wealthy at the expense of everyone else. Just like their irresponsible tax cuts last year, this new tax plan showers benefits on the wealthiest Americans, while adding hundreds of billions of dollars to the nation’s debt through 2028 and trillions more after that. When those bills come due, Republicans will try to pay them by attacking crucial programs American families rely on, and at the top of their list are Medicare and Social Security."
