It’s no secret that the 2017 Republican tax law Senator Susan Collins helped pass amounted to a massive giveaway to corporate special interests and the wealthiest Americans, with little benefit to most Americans.
A new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service details just how “lopsided” Senator Collins’ tax law has turned out to be, with massive giveaways to special interests and little benefits to average Mainers. Independent economists agree that the GOP tax law will “likely make income inequality worse.”
Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesperson Stewart Boss released the following statement in response to the new CRS report showing the extent of Susan Collins’ tax giveaway:
“It should come as a surprise to exactly no one that Senator Collins supported a massive giveaway to corporations and the wealthy, no matter the impact on Maine families. The more we learn about the law Republicans rammed through Congress, the clearer it becomes that Collins was all too happy to sell out working Mainers and tip the scales even further for big business and her wealthy donors.”
Congress’s official think tank finds the Republican tax cuts helped corporations, not workers.
