Washington, DC – This afternoon, Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) spoke against the Trump-Ryan tax proposal being debated by the House of Representatives. A final vote on the bill is expected tomorrow by early afternoon.

“If you asked 435 members of Congress if they want to raise taxes on students, the answer from 435 members would be ‘no.’ This bill was written by and for the donor class. Let’s defeat this bill and stand up for the middle class.”
