TRUMP TAX SCAM. U.S. SENATOR SHELDON WHITEHOUSE.

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse — US Senator for Rhode Island

TrumpTax is a scam. Early this morning, while most Americans were sleeping, Senate Republicans voted to hike taxes on millions of middle-class families to pay for tax cuts for President Trump and his billionaire friends. This so-called ‘tax reform’ moves our nation in the wrong direction by every measure: it will send more American jobs overseas, increase health insurance premiums, explode our national debt, and pollute an already-complicated tax code with new loopholes and gifts for the very wealthy. It’s a giveaway to Republican donors, and the American people should take note. https://mobile.nytimes.com/…/us/polit…/senate-tax-bill.html…
Senate Republicans made major changes to their bill and picked up the votes to push it through the chamber 51-49 early Saturday morning.
