Third Way calls on Congress to “repeal and replace” the Republican tax bill
December 20, 2017
WASHINGTON—Third Way issued the following statement from Jim Kessler:
"This abomination of a tax bill may be done in Congress, but the pain is just starting for the country. Future generations will be punished by critical program cuts and painful tax increases as a result of this deficit-hiking monstrosity. American households will be punished to the benefit of foreign investors. Families will be punished based on where they live. Working- and middle-class Americans will be punished with more expensive health insurance. And, through all this, the GOP asks nothing of wealthy taxpayers.
“Congress must repeal and replace this monstrosity. Americans are clamoring for the government to help provide them the opportunity to earn a good life—bipartisan reform should prioritize that above all else. It can get there by creating the conditions for sustainable growth, putting work on par with wealth, and simplifying our code in a fiscally sustainable way. Republicans may have snuck through their scam of a bill, but the American people must continue to demand that it is repealed and replaced with something that actually works.”
