Bennet Statement on Republican Tax Plan

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement in response to the so-called "Big Six" tax reform framework:

"I'm committed to working on fiscally-responsible tax reform that will make our country more competitive and boost paychecks for workers and middle-class families," Bennet said. "The Republican plan does not come close to meeting these standards. Its intent to lower corporate rates, create a huge new loophole, and repeal the estate tax can only mean two things: slashing taxes dramatically for the wealthy and increasing the national debt by trillions of dollars. The math simply does not add up. I hope for a change of course, so we can work in a bipartisan manner to provide real relief for hard-working families."
