“Un-American”

 

Washington, DC – Today, in response to the House vote to pass the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the Chair of the Patriotic Millionaires Morris Pearl, former Managing Director at BlackRock, Inc., issued the following statement:

“This bill isn’t just cruel, it’s un-American. No one in their right mind could possibly believe that the middle class has too much and the rich and powerful have too little in today’s America, but somehow the majority of the House just voted to give the rich even more, at the expense of everyone else. It’s a massive handout to the wealthy at the expense of the rest of the country, and every Member of the House knows it. Every Representative who voted for this bill just sold out their constituents. Whether it was for donors, or for their personal gain, or whatever, the result is clear: the rich get richer, and the middle class gets screwed.”
