LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine), a member of the U.S. Senate Budget Committee, today urged caution on rushing the proposed tax reform plan through the Senate without substantial hearings, feedback from the public, or information from experts. His remarks come days ahead of a planned vote before the full Senate on the tax cut framework.
“We could get 70 votes, or 80 votes, for a tax reform proposal that was less damaging to the deficit, more stimulative to the economy, and more fairly distributed,” Senator King said. “[…]Let’s slow down, have a real process, get input from people all across the country, find out what this bill would actually do. Change it. Improve it. And then come out with a product that can be passed on a bipartisan basis, will be much more consistent with the needs and desires of the American people, and will make – I believe – a difference for the next generation. Instead of being a millstone, it will be an opportunity.”
