Statement from Mayor de Blasio on the United States Senate's Tax Plan Vote

December 2, 2017

"Republicans, voting on a bill they didn't even have time to read, once again proved they care more about millionaires and campaign donors than working families. They voted for a tax increase for 87 million households. They voted for a $25 billion cut to Medicaid. They voted to kick 13 million people off their health insurance. They voted to give wealthy companies a tax break at the expense of cities' police officers, firefighters and teachers.

"Thankfully, the fight isn't over. We can win this, but only if we all get involved. We must make the voices of hard working Americans from around the country heard in Washington, D.C. It's time to remind our legislators that they work for us, not their campaign donors."
