Democratic National Committee: On Pence visit to Wisconsin

Mike Pence is traveling to Wisconsin this afternoon to pitch a Republican tax reform plan that is nothing more than a thinly-veiled giveaway to big corporations and the 1%. Ahead of Pence’s visit, DNC Midwest Press Secretary Mandy McClure released the following statement:

“The only thing we know about the Republican tax plan is that it would benefit giant corporations and the richest 1% of Americans at the expense of everyone else. We won’t know the specifics of the plan until the last minute, because Donald Trump, Mike Pence, and their Republican colleagues know that if they’re honest about what’s in their tax plan, Americans will oppose it. We saw this intentional secrecy with health care, and now we’re seeing it with tax reform. Democrats believe in real tax reform that helps the middle class and ensures that big corporations and the 1% pay their fair share. Trump, Pence, and their Republican colleagues owe it to the American people to stop writing their plan behind closed doors and explain exactly how their proposals will impact Wisconsin families.”
