STATEMENT: Trump Administration Announces New Round of Tax Scam Coming in September
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow announced that the Trump administration will unveil ‘new middle-class tax cuts’ sometime in September, as an extension of Trump’s 2017 tax cuts.
Executive Director of Tax March Maura Quint responded to the announcement:
“If Trump had wanted to help the middle-class, he would have done so already. Instead, he continues to push tax giveaways to the wealthy and major corporations while also proposing massive cuts to services that everyday Americans pay into and depend upon. Announcing an ambiguous set of so-called middle-class tax cuts just ahead of the November election is yet another political ploy.
“We know the truth: the first punch of the Trump tax scam brought higher taxes on working people to pay for the massive giveaways to billionaires and corporations. And now, to top it all off, Trump is trying to land a second punch to our pocketbooks. The only promise Trump is fulfilling with this second round of tax cuts is his commitment to enrich the rich at the expense of working people.”
