REP. JOHN LEWIS STATEMENT ON NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE OUTLINING GOP TAX BILL

"Friends,
For years you have stood by my side as I've fought to ensure fairness and equality in Congress.  Today, we stand against another test of our values.  This bill being supported by my Republican colleagues is mean-spirited and will chart an unjust future for generations yet unborn.  We cannot stand for this, we must not stand for it.
A recent article published by the New York Times exposes the real impacts of the GOP tax plan.  This article outlines just a fraction of the harm this shameful bill will have on the American people.

This bill is nothing more than a tax break for the rich, paid for on the backs of the hard-working middle class.  I refuse to allow it to pass without a fight and let petty partisanship impugn our sense of humanity."
