Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) released the following statement on the Republican tax principles announced today:
“I have always been ready to work with my colleagues on bipartisan tax reform. However, the tax proposal announced today by the Trump Administration and Republican leadership is wholly unacceptable and harmful to working families.
“Instead of working toward comprehensive improvements to the tax code that would benefit the majority of Americans, this plan would hand trillions of dollars in tax cuts to the wealthy and large corporations.
“We should be doing everything we can to support working families through tax reform and job creation. Sadly, the Republican tax plan looks to be the cousin of the Republican healthcare plan- both deeply partisan and unpopular with everyday Americans.”
