WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution Board Chair Larry Cohen released the following statement in response to the passage of the GOP tax plan in the Senate.
“The donor class likely danced all night as they learned about the Republican tax bill that took care of them at the expense of the rest of us. Republican deficit hawks had no problem adding a trillion dollars to the deficit and paying back those donors a thousandfold for their contributions.
“Lobbyists in record numbers swarmed Washington all year producing a nearly 40 percent corporate tax cut for their bosses and pretending that workers would get pay increases as profits soar. We need to double down on our organizing, exposing the lie that serving the rich is good for all of us, and fighting the cuts in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security that this tax giveaway will otherwise trigger.”
