Washington, DC -House Democratic Caucus Vice Chair Linda Sánchez (D-CA) today gave the following statement during debate on the House Republican Tax Scam 2.0 legislation:

“I stand here saddened but not shocked at the I responsibility of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle I guess their giveaway to the ultra-wealthy one enough last time around so they've come back for round two, a fake tax reform 2.0. When the bill nor new gimmick eventually comes due, I'm terrified Republicans will pay for it by gutting Social Security and Medicare two earned benefit programs on which my constituents rely. 

“I've heard a lot of rhetoric about how today's bill will help the middle class but the only thing that today's legislation guarantees is adding at least $3 trillion more to the deficit over just a period of 10 years. And who picks up the tab? Middle class Americans, that's who. Working families who are saving for retirement or putting their kids through school. 

“I urge my colleagues to vote down this terrible bill, let common sense reign.”
