STATEMENT: Ways and Means for Millionaires and Billionaires

Congressman Vern Buchanan chairs the Ways and Means Tax Policy Subcommittee, which is now holding a hearing on the impact of the #TrumpTax. While Trump and Buchanan still see tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires and wealthy corporations as a benefit to the economy, average Floridians know they’re getting taken for a ride. Floridians for a Fair Shake spokesperson Maxwell Frost issued the following statement:

“Who’s feeling positive about the #TrumpTax? There’s no need for a congressional hearing for that. Millionaires, billionaires and wealthy corporations are the ones throwing the party that Congressman Vern Buchanan is attending, while average Floridians get stuck on the waiting list. Most Floridians will receive only $360 next year from the #TrumpTax, a far cry from the tax breaks those at the top are getting. Let’s see who testifies to that today.”
