McCollum Statement on Republican Tax “Framework”
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement on House and Senate Republicans’ tax “framework”:
“The Republican tax framework is a multi-trillion dollar giveaway to billionaires and big corporations at the expense of working Minnesotans and Americans. It tilts the playing field to the richest few and eliminates the estate tax to benefit people like President Trump. It explodes the deficit, undermines Social Security and Medicare, and leaves working families footing the bill. In short, the Republican framework is fundamentally unfair to the American people.
“In 2001 and 2003, I opposed the Bush tax cuts that turned our budget surplus to a deficit, added trillions to the national debt, and failed to create jobs. Today’s Republican framework is a warmed-over version of those bad ideas. I oppose it and any other plan that gives tax breaks to billionaires on the backs of working families.”
