Van Hollen Statement on Trump Tax Reform Proposal

Today U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement on President Trump's outline of a tax reform proposal:

"President Trump's tax reform proposal is a half-baked collection of ideas that add up to a huge giveaway to Donald Trump and his rich friends. If your last name is Trump, this plan is great for your bottom line. But if you're one of the millions of Americans who feels left behind by this economy, President Trump's plan only makes your problems worse. This plan will balloon the federal debt which, in turn, will have to be paid for by working Americans, and our children and grandchildren. Instead of offering giveaways to wealthy special interests, we must level the playing field for hardworking Americans and build an economy that helps every American get ahead."
