Washington, DC – U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) issued the following statement on Trump’s tax plan announced earlier today:

“The Trump tax plan is great for people like Donald Trump—the wealthy and the well-connected. It's unjust and unfair for everyone else. Asking everyday Americans to shoulder the burden of a massive tax giveaway to the rich breaks the promise President Trump made—just yesterday—of a tremendous tax cut for the middle class and the vow his administration made to not cut taxes for the wealthiest Americans.

“In a time when we should be investing in our future and working together to address economic challenges like stagnating wages and rising inequality, the Trump tax plan is the reverse.  Everyday Americans and future generations lose under the Trump tax plan, while the wealthy keep winning.”
