FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Democratic Proposal to Repeal of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the proposal by prominent Democrats to repeal the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and replace it with increased government transfer payments, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“For years been a running joke amongst fiscal conservatives in America that the Democrats just want to raise taxes and enact a universal basic income. What was once a bad joke is now a bad policy proposal. On the eve of the 2018 midterms, Democrats have made clear they want to repeal 2017’s tax reforms and expand the welfare state.”

“Since the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the American economy has experienced record success. We are looking at 4% GDP growth and unemployment at some of the lowest levels in history. Without a doubt, this is due to the Republican tax plan. Democrats would rather see Americans dependent upon the federal government than have them open businesses and provide for their families. The American people truly cannot afford to see Democrats in power.”
