Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the non-partisan Tax Policy Center released an analysis of the GOP tax scam conference report:
“The final draft of the GOP tax scam is the most shameless and brazen theft of them all. 

“According to non-partisan analysis, Republicans’ final bill will raise taxes on a breathtaking 86 million middle class households and hand 83 percent of the benefits to the wealthiest one percent.  By the end, more than half of all American households will pay higher taxes under the Republican bill. 

“Tomorrow, Republicans will vote to let the wealthiest one percent steal the future of the middle class in America.  The GOP tax bill will go down as one of the most scandalous, obscene acts of plutocracy ever.”
