Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the Senate Finance Committee rejected the House Republican tax scam, H.R. 1, unanimously by a vote of 26 to 0 as an amendment to the Senate tax proposal:
“Tomorrow, Speaker Ryan will ask House Republicans to vote for a tax hike on 36 million middle class families that is dead on arrival in the Senate.
“Vulnerable House Republicans will have to choose whether or not to walk the plank voting for a massive middle class tax hike for no reason. And the American people will hold them accountable for their decisions.”
