WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) today spoke out forcefully against the proposed Republican tax bill, which will significantly cut taxes for corporations and the wealthy, while increasing taxes for millions of American families.

“This tax bill has seen no hearings, no expert testimony and absolutely no honest efforts to build bipartisan support.” said Congressman Sarbanes. “This is a terrible shame, and the result is a terrible sham.”

Sarbanes continued, “Who are the ones calling the shots on this tax bill? The corporate lobbyists and the big-money donors who will make out like bandits. They’re the ones who will walk away with a smile on their face and money in their pocket. Meanwhile, millions of hardworking Americans will see their taxes increase under this plan. The latest numbers from the CBO say that 82 million Americans would be worse off.”
