Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement on Tax Day:
“On this Tax Day, big banks, big pharma and big corporations are celebrating their record windfall and soaring profits from the GOP Tax Scam for the rich. Yet, for millions of hard-working families, Tax Day is not living up to the Republicans’ promises.
“After exploding the deficit by $2 trillion dollars, Republicans continue to push a disastrous special interest agenda that undermines the health and economic security of American families. Instead of working to strengthen communities and lift up the middle class, Republicans have doubled down on their monstrous health care lawsuit to strike down pre-existing condition protections and take away Americans’ health care.
“Democrats will continue to oppose the Republicans’ monstrous assault on the economic strength and well-being of American families. We are fighting For The People to lower the cost of health care and the price of prescription drugs, increase wages by rebuilding America with green, modern infrastructure and clean up corruption to make sure Washington works for the public interest, not the special interests.”
