Rep. Barragán statement on House vote to send tax bill to conference with the Senate
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Nanette Diaz Barragán (D-San Pedro) issued the following statement on the vote to send the House tax bill to conference with the Senate:
“House Republicans took another step tonight in ramming through a massive tax cut for the wealthy and corporations that the overwhelming majority of Americans don’t want. The GOP tax scam hurts hardworking Americans to give massive tax breaks to the top 1 percent and corporations.
Just this past Saturday, the Senate passed its own version of tax cuts for the wealthy, hastily written and passed in the dead of night. We should instead be working on bipartisan legislation that grows the economy and helps working Americans.”
Nanette Diaz Barragán is proud to represent California’s 44th Congressional District, which includes the communities of Carson, Compton, Lynwood, North Long Beach, Rancho Dominguez, San Pedro, South Gate, Walnut Park, Watts, Willowbrook and Wilmington.
