HEADLINES & TV CLIPS: Fierce Local Backlash to GOP Tax Scam

In case you missed it, headlines, editorials, and TV coverage across the country are capturing the fierce backlash vulnerable House Republicans are facing over their tax scam bill.

“Vulnerable House Republicans are feeling the heat for a Tax Scam that will cut taxes for the rich and big corporations while attacking the middle class and massively increasing the national debt”, said DCCC Spokesperson Tyler Law. “With polls showing that the GOP Tax Scam is widely and increasingly unpopular, this bill will be a huge political liability for Speaker Ryan and House Republicans in 2018.”
