Cicilline Statement on Republicans’ Tax Proposal

Thursday, November 2, 2017

WASHINGTON – Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Co-Chair David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement today:

“This is a sham. President Trump promised the American people a tax reform plan that cuts taxes on the middle class and creates good-paying jobs. Instead, the plan Republicans released today will give 80% of the tax cuts to corporations and the wealthiest 1%. It will cut trillions of dollars from Medicare, Medicaid, and other programs that support working families, including education, infrastructure investments, and health care for veterans. 173,000 Rhode Islanders will see their taxes go up because they will lose the ability to deduct state and local taxes on their federal return.”

“Let’s be clear – this is a gift to those at the very top, while everyone else gets left behind. Working families deserve A Better Deal.”
