Clark Statement on passage of Republican tax bill

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Katherine Clark issued this statement following the passage of the Republican tax bill:

“Instead of the tax reform that Republicans promised, average Americans were just handed the bill for a $1.5 trillion dollar gift to corporate America. Massachusetts families will bear the disproportionate brunt of a tax hike that eliminates tools millions use to continue their education, offset high medical costs, and make homeownership affordable. Instead of reform, Republicans handed us a carbon copy of the tax experiment that has repeatedly failed our economy. Today is a victory for corporations and the very wealthiest Americans that are tightening their grip on Washington, and I will continue fighting against this scam on American families.”
