Scott Statement on Republicans’ Tax Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement after Congressional Republicans unveiled H.R. 1, the so-called Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:
“The Republican’s proposed plan provides tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest among us and adds $1.5 trillion to the deficit. This legislation provides no real investment in workers, jobs or the economy. Eventually these irresponsible tax cuts will be paid for by cutting Medicare, Medicaid, veteran services, educational resources, and other vital services for working families.
