Senator Hassan Statement After Voting No on Republican Tax Bill

“The bill that the Senate passed tonight is not real tax reform, it’s a giveaway to corporate special interests and the ultra-wealthy at the expense of hard-working Granite Staters and Americans. Over the past weeks and months, I repeatedly made clear to my Republican colleagues that I was willing to work together on bipartisan tax reform that would help middle class families and small businesses. Unfortunately, Washington Republicans took another path – pursuing a partisan bill that was crafted behind closed-doors, which will add more than $1 trillion to the national debt, cause health insurance premiums to increase, and make our tax code even more complicated. I remain eager to work with anyone who is actually serious about pursuing real tax reform that will expand economic opportunity so that all hard-working families and small businesses can thrive, but this bill is not the solution.”
