Wyden Statement on Republican Tax Deal

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement on the Senate and House Republican tax deal:

“Americans are learning how many tax promises Republicans are willing to break, how many cons they’re willing to run, how many hardworking families they’re willing to betray to guarantee handouts to powerful CEOs and campaign donors. The country has been watching and protesting with anger as Republicans are now days away from passing their back door deal that digs into the pockets of the middle class to pay for massive tax breaks for multinational corporations. This is a historically unpopular bill that hikes taxes on the middle class, leaves 13 million Americans uninsured and raises premiums for millions more.”
