After today’s vote, it’s never been more clear that this Congress doesn’t represent our values. The American people didn’t ask for tax cuts for millionaires — wealthy Republican donors did. If that’s not enough, many Republicans voted for a tax scam for their own personal gain over the American public.
Today’s defeat is painful — and the impacts could be felt for generations. But this fight is far from over.
In 2018, Republicans in Congress will have to defend their vote and explain to their constituents why they sided with corporate interests over working families. From now until November 6, 2018, we must hold each and every elected official accountable for their vote on this scam.
