Tax Day Rip Off

Apr 18, 2018
Pelosi Update

Dear San Franciscan,

On this Tax Day, Americans are watching the GOP’s tax giveaways enrich big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent at the expense of seniors and working families nationwide.  Around the kitchen table, working families aren’t seeing what they were promised.  Instead, they’re seeing that the tax scam has exploded the debt and is now threatening the future of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. 

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi joins advocates in front of the Capitol  to discuss the tax scam and the negative impact it will have on America’s hardworking families.

Republicans wrote their scam to ultimately raise taxes on 86 million middle class families, while handing staggering windfalls to Wall Street, pharmaceutical companies, and big corporations shipping American jobs overseas.  The tax scam reveals those in Washington chose their wealthy special interest donors instead of the working men and women who are the backbone of our country. 

While Americans file their taxes, Tax Day also serves as a bitter reminder that President Trump still refuses to show the public his tax returns.  Hard-working families deserve to know how their president has padded his own pockets with a tax scam that inflicts such damage on the deficit and the future of Social Security and Medicare.  As Congress refuses to demand this basic measure of transparency and accountability from President Trump, we must ask: what does President Trump have to hide?

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi held a press conference in San Francisco where she discussed the consequences of the Tax Scam, which will be felt by Americans in communities nationwide.

Democrats will continue to fight for real, bipartisan tax reform that creates jobs, reduces the deficit and puts the middle class first with A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.
