Press Release

Washington, DC- Rep. Linda Sánchez (D-CA), Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus and a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, today released the following statement on the tax outline released by Republicans:

"Tax cuts do not pay for themselves. Period. The plan released today by the White House is heavy on the deficits, but light on the details. What we know from the few details is that this outline does not make the kitchen table budget discussion any easier for working Americans.

“America is in need of real tax reform, not a tax giveaway to the wealthy. I strongly believe that bipartisan tax reform is a possibility. However, this outline does not move our country closer to achieving the goal of comprehensive tax reform. It is simply another massive tax cut for the wealthy at the expense of hard-working Americans.”
