Governor McAuliffe Statement on Senate Passage of GOP Tax Reform

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe released the following statement today following the Senate’s rapid passage of the Republican tax cut bill early this morning:

“Today, Republicans in Congress sent the American people a clear message that they care more about enriching donors and corporations than serving families facing real economic challenges. At a time when corporations are posting record profits and workers continue to get squeezed, this bill tips the scale even further toward the wealthy and away from the middle class.

“The people of Virginia and this nation need leaders who will fight to create opportunity for all people, not just the wealthy and well-connected. The members of Congress who voted for this disastrous bill let us down.”
