AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders on the Senate Tax Plan

WASHINGTON — 

AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders issued the following statement on the tax plan announced by Senate leadership:

“Both versions of the tax plan moving through Congress were already a raw deal for working families. The decision to tack on the repeal of the linchpin of the Affordable Care Act adds insult to injury. Not only will millions of middle class families see their taxes go up, 13 million Americans will lose their health insurance – all so the biggest corporations and powerful elites can get tax cuts they don’t need and don’t deserve. Any claim that this tax plan is designed to help working people is an absolute farce.”
