San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after Republicans unveiled the conference report of the GOP tax scam:

“With each version, the GOP tax scam becomes an even more cowardly, outrageous, and brazen theft from middle class families to corporations and the wealthiest one percent.  
 
“Slashing the top tax rate for the wealthiest Americans even deeper is Republicans’ final insult to hard-working Americans in this deficit-exploding scam of a bill.  Republicans went into conference with two bills that raise taxes on tens of millions of middle class families.  But instead of actually helping middle class Americans, the GOP throws them a few meager crumbs while slashing taxes for millionaires even deeper. 
 
“The GOP tax scam’s theft from middle class families to give to the wealthiest is a moral obscenity.  The American people see it for exactly the con job it is.  And the American people will hold Republicans accountable for the votes they cast next week.”
