WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) issued the following statement today in response to the newly released House Republican tax bill:

“This tax proposal is a textbook example of how wealthy and well-connected special interests have hijacked our democracy. The bill is a windfall for Wall Street and the super-rich, and a bad deal for millions of everyday Americans. Instead of investing in middle class families and our children’s future, this bill will provide massive giveaways to millionaires, billionaires and corporations. American families deserve better. To make things worse, the Republicans tucked in a little-noticed provision that will allow even more dark, undisclosed big money to flow into our politics.”
