Sanders: GOP Tax Plan "Laying The Groundwork For Cuts To Social Security"


Senator Bernie Sanders calls Republicans hypocrites for trying to pass a tax bill that would inflate the budget deficit after claiming to be the party of fiscal responsibility for years.

BERNIE SANDERS: It is not surprising that my Republican colleagues would be pushing legislation that would give tax breaks to the very rich, but I really do have a hard time understanding how they are prepared to vote for legislation that would increase the deficit by some $1.4 trillion.

The overwhelming majority of the American people do not want to see tax breaks for billionaires, and raising taxes for the middle class, and laying the groundwork for cuts to Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare.

I would hope very much that my Republican colleagues, who for so long talked about the dangers of the deficit, would join us in voting no to this incredibly horrific and unfair piece of legislation.
