Duckworth Statement on President’s Proposal to Cut His Own Taxes


[WASHINGTON, D.C.] - Today, U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) released the following statement in response to the Trump Administration's proposal to slash taxes for the wealthy, while preserving wasteful corporate tax loopholes:

"It's hard to keep track of all the scandals in this administration but the American people should not overlook how the President's plan would enrich his family and his ultra-wealthy friends while leaving taxpayers with the bill. Without his tax returns, we can't know just how much the President stands to gain under this harmful proposal, but we do know that the Trump organization would benefit to the tune of tens of millions of dollars."
