Statement on Trump and Republicans’ Enactment of Devastating Tax Scam
In response to Trump and the Kansas congressional delegation’s enactment of the GOP tax plan, the Kansas Democratic Party released the following statement:
Topeka, KS – Today marks the end of a sad and broken process. Over the past few months, we have watched every member of Kansas’ congressional delegation work as fast and as secretly as possible to raise the taxes and health insurance premiums of their hard-working constituents. These politicians have put Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security on the chopping block, all to advance the interests of the wealthy corporations, donors, and lobbyists bankrolling their campaigns.
What makes this enactment even more reckless is that of all the members of Congress who should know what failed tax policy looks like, it should be the Kansas delegation. After seven years of devastation in Kansas, these politicians voted to replicate Gov. Sam Brownback’s failed experiment at the federal level. Kansans deserve better and will no doubt remember the GOP’s disregard for the middle class in November.
