LeeAnn Hall, co-executive director of People’s Action, issued a statement sharply criticizing the Republican tax cut plan released November 2 by the House Ways and Means Committee.
“Don’t be fooled: The Trump/GOP tax plan is one more attack on health care that puts working families, the elderly, poor and children at risk while padding the pockets of the one percent and wealthy corporations,” Hall said.
“Wealthy prescription drug corporations like Pfizer that put profits before patients, and have stashed profits overseas to avoid paying U.S. taxes, are getting a break,” said Hall. “Meanwhile, Medicare and Medicaid and people dependent on that care – from kids to those facing the ravages of the Opioid epidemic – face $1.5 trillion in cuts.”
