Congresswoman Cheri Bustos Statement on President Trump’s Tax Proposal

“I strongly believe that we need to reform the nation’s tax code to make it simpler and fairer for hardworking families across the country. But rather than working with both Republicans and Democrats to give middle-class families relief, President Trump is trying to give himself and other billionaires a massive tax break with absolutely no way to pay for it. While I’m ready to work across the aisle to reform our tax code for the families I serve, I cannot support a plan that explodes the national deficit and gives windfall tax cuts to Wall Street and the ultra-wealthy.”
