John McCain announces he supports the GOP tax bill — which means it will probably pass
Chuck Schumer: To be clear: the GOPTaxBill will increase the deficit which will cannibalize support from everything we know is essential to economic growth and a strong middle class, including support for our men and women in uniform.
Chuck Schumer: The GOPTaxBill will balloon the deficit by at least $1.5 TRILLION: adding to the debt burden borne by the next generation and diminishing our ability to support the military and invest in our schools, our roads, and in scientific research.
Senator John McCain: After careful consideration, I have decided to support the Senate TaxReform bill. Though not perfect, this bill will deliver much-needed reform to our tax code, grow the economy and provide long overdue tax relief for American families.
Chuck Schumer: The American ppl are clamoring for us to work together. They believe our politics is broken. They think our politics is starved of common sense and compromise, and it is. The way the GOPTaxBill is being rammed thru is exactly why the American ppl think our politics is so broken.
Chuck Schumer: From the one-sidedness with which it was drafted to the reckless haste with which it was considered – the GOPTaxBill has failed to go through anything resembling the normal legislative process.
