Statement on Senate Republicans’ Approval of Devastating Tax Scam
Topeka, KS – Senators Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran just voted to raise taxes on everyday Kansans such as teachers, college students, seniors, and low- and middle-income families. Roberts and Moran also just voted to increase health insurance premiums by removing integral parts of the Affordable Care Act. In short, Roberts and Moran voted to send the entire country down the same failed path Gov. Brownback has had us on for the past seven years, despite fierce opposition from their own constituents.
And for what? Significant tax cuts for wealthy corporations and the rich.
Two weeks after Representatives Roger Marshall, Lynn Jenkins, Kevin Yoder, and Ron Estes again proved unable to act in the best interests of everyday Kansans, Roberts and Moran have shown that they also cannot adequately represent their own constituents. Kansans deserve better from our elected officials.
