Cortez Masto on Trump’s Tax Proposal

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement after President Donald Trump announced his tax proposal:

“While announcing his new tax plan, President Trump said: ‘it’s not good for me.’ Well, I am more interested in knowing whether this tax plan is good for Nevada. I am reviewing this plan but cannot support legislation that would be a windfall for the wealthiest Americans and special interests, increases the deficit, and refuses to make the necessary investments in the future of our working families and our country. It is my hope that Senate Republicans’ will stand with Senator John McCain’s call for a bipartisan process. There is no doubt that our tax code is broken, and I look forward to working in a bipartisan way to modernize our tax system to lift up the middle-class and unleash economic growth.”
