WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) today rose in opposition to the House Republican tax plan, which would leave a $1.5 trillion hole in the federal budget to cut taxes for the wealthiest Americans and corporations, and take away tax benefits from hardworking, middle-class American families.

“I rise today to oppose the Republican tax plan – a tax plan that is of, by and for the wealthy and well-connected,” Congressman Sarbanes said. “How do we know this? Well yesterday, a Republican Congressman told a Capitol Hill reporter, ‘My donors are basically saying, “Get it done or don’t ever call me again.”’ There you have it. A window into the true motivation for this bill. It’s a massive giveaway to the big-donor class.”

A full video of the Congressman’s remarks is below.
