For tax filing day, Wasserman Schultz slams Republican tax cuts and GOP praises them

As people wrap up their federal income taxes in time for the April 15 deadline, U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz says middle class families are paying more — because President Donald Trump and Republicans cut taxes for the wealthy and corporations.

“The revolting GOP Tax Scam was an underhanded assault on hard-working Americans, and gave huge breaks to the ultra-wealthy and corporations, while raising taxes on millions of families, and exploding the deficit,” the Broward/Miami-Dade County Democrat said in a statement.

A spokesman for the Republican National Committee, offered the opposite view on Monday.

“Families across the Sunshine State can breathe a little bit easier this Tax Day, because President Trump and Republicans followed through on their promise to lower taxes,” the Republican committee said in a statement. The economic “Armageddon” predicted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, didn’t appear, the Republicans said.
