WASHINGTON, DC – On Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at 1:30 PM, the Congressional Progressive Caucus will join Democratic Members of Congress and advocates to call on Congress to reject the Ryan-McConnell tax plan.

Republicans have finally unveiled their long-awaited tax framework, but rather than putting forward a plan for tax reform, it’s another GOP multi-trillion dollar giveaway to the wealthiest at the expense of the middle class and working Americans. Democrats in Congress are standing firm in demanding real job-creating, wage-raising tax reform with not one penny in tax breaks for the wealthiest one percent and corporations who haven’t paid their fair share.
