Congressman Krishnamoorthi Questions Fiscal Responsibility Of Republican Leadership's Tax Plan, Calls For Tax Relief For Working Families And Small Businesses

September 27, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC –  Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi released the following statement in response to the recently released Republican tax plan:

“As the details of the plan have been trickling out, I’ve been disappointed that the House Republican leadership has taken the same secretive approach to taxes that they brought to healthcare. We need tax reform that helps working families and small businesses without blowing up the deficit, but this plan doesn’t include any information on how it will pay for its tax cuts. Rallying support for tax cuts by saying they’ll pay for themselves may be easy but isn’t true or responsible. It’s like when my kids want to skip the vegetables and have ice cream for dinner.”
