San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement after the Government Accountability Office released a report estimating that, following passage of the GOP Tax Scam for the rich, 30 million taxfilers will owe money on their 2018 tax returns, filed in 2019:

“Next year, an estimated 30 million taxpayers are in for a nasty surprise about how they’ve fared under the GOP Tax Scam for the rich.  According to a new report by the non-partisan Government Accountability Office, 1 in 5 taxpayers will discover they owe money when they file their 2018 tax returns.  
“After all the empty promises of the GOP Tax Scam for the rich, millions of hard-working families are going to find out they’ve been conned when they file next year.  While Republicans try to hand even bigger tax breaks to the wealthiest 1 percent, Democrats will keep fighting to deliver A Better Deal for the people.”
