Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) today issued the following statement on President Donald Trump’s tax proposal:

“President Trump and Congressional Republicans are pushing the same tired scheme that seeks to line the pockets of the wealthy and fill the coffers of large corporations at the expense of the American people.

“What the White House put out today was not a tax reform plan at all, but a one-page set of guidelines.  I have long supported bipartisan efforts for real tax reform that would support working families and small businesses, but Trump’s announcement today misses the mark entirely and does not do nearly enough for America’s hardworking families.”
