Congressman Tim Ryan Statement on House Passage of GOP Tax Conference Report

December 19, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan released the following statement in response to the House passage of the GOP Tax Conference Report. 

“President Trump and Congressional Republicans have lied to the American people about the impact of this tax legislation since the beginning. This bill will increase taxes on half of all Americans, decrease long term economic growth, and send our national debt skyrocketing – all to give huge multinational corporations who have been making record profits a tax break. We have pensions collapsing and communities that have been wiped out, and yet the GOP plan to fix all of this is to raise taxes on 82 million hardworking families. To make matters worse, we are going to need to borrow huge sums of money from China to give tax breaks to these corporations and inflict further pain on the middle class by cutting Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, education, and other important programs Americans rely on every day. As the House took this final vote to raise taxes on hardworking people, families back in Youngstown and Akron are getting ready for the holidays: buying gifts, arranging travel, and cooking for their families. I wish Congressional Republicans cared as much about these men and women as they did about lining their donors’ pockets. But as this vote shows, clearly they do not,” said Congressman Ryan.   Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan released the following statement in response to the House passage of the GOP Tax Conference Report.
