Pallone Votes Against Catastrophic GOP Tax Plan

Nov 17, 2017

Washington, DC – Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) released the following statement after voting against H.R 1 – the GOP Tax Bill.

“The Republican tax plan is simply a giveaway to the wealthiest of Americans and multinational corporations, paid for on the backs of the middle class and those who aspire to reach it.  Limiting or eliminating deductions on state and local taxes, property taxes, medical expenses, and higher education will raise the cost of living for New Jersey families, and makes it more difficult for them to make ends meet. This shameful bill reveals once again the misguided priorities of the Republican majority. I’m proud to vote against this bill because it will raise taxes on thousands of New Jerseyans, while vastly expanding the deficit.”
