Today marks two years since Republicans launched their campaign to pass a “lopsided giveaway” to corporate special interests and the wealthiest Americans. Since then, their reckless tax handout has blown up the deficit, threatened Social Security and Medicare, and laid the foundation for a dangerous lawsuit that could send health care costs skyrocketing and gut coverage protections, such as those for people with pre-existing conditions, maternity care, and allowing kids to stay on their parents’ insurance until they turn 26.
“In the two years since Republicans rolled out their reckless tax agenda, CEO pay and profits for giant corporations have soared while the deficit has exploded and too many working families are still struggling to make ends meet,” said DSCC spokesperson Stewart Boss. “Thanks to Republicans’ lopsided handout to the special interests and the wealthy, millions of Americans are also at risk of seeing their health care costs rise even higher and the coverage protections they rely on done away with. Every vulnerable GOP Senator up for re-election next year helped pass this harmful tax law, and we will continue to hold them accountable for their toxic records.”
As Republicans jammed their tax giveaway through the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “If we can’t sell this to the American people we ought to go into another line of work.” Two years later, Americans still aren’t sold on this reckless agenda.
