WASHINGTON D.C. – As House Democrats work to ram through Sen. Bernie Sanders’ $3.5 trillion budget, Ways and Means Committee Republican Leader Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) urged pro-small business Democrats to oppose crippling tax hikes on working families and small businesses on Bloomberg’s Balance of Power. 

 

“I’m fighting hardest of course against these $3.5 trillion of tax hikes. They’ll be crippling for Main Street businesses, certainly they’ll land on working families, but most importantly, we’re going to drive U.S. jobs overseas. […]

 

“It’s been a bit stunning to see the Speaker’s absolute disdain for these moderate Democrats in her own caucus. […] They are moving forward on that massive bill, but frankly, no one knows what’s in that. There’s been no debate. No committee work.”
