Donnelly: Bill Hikes Taxes on Many Middle Class Families, Fails to Address Outsourcing of American Jobs
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly spoke on the Senate floor today expressing his disappointment and explaining why he will oppose the tax hike legislation put forward by Senator Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan. From the beginning, Donnelly has shown his willingness to work with the president on tax reform. Over the last several months, Donnelly traveled with the President to Indiana on Air Force One, attended Vice President Pence’s speech in Anderson, and participated in multiple meetings with the White House.
Donnelly agreed with the president’s goals of reforming the tax code in a way that overwhelmingly supports the middle class and prevents the outsourcing of American jobs. The McConnell/Ryan bill, however, does not reflect these priorities and instead would result in a tax hike for many Hoosier middle class families and fails to crack down on corporations that outsource jobs to foreign countries.
