DFL Chairman Ken Martin Statement on Vice President Pence Visiting Minnesota
[ST. PAUL, MN] – Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement in advance of Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to Minnesota.
“Mike Pence is descending on Minnesota to peddle the GOP’s tax scam. This bill is Robin Hood in reverse. It takes from hardworking Minnesotans to give massive tax breaks to the wealthy.”
“While corporations will see their taxes cut by 40 percent, the plan increases taxes on hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans. And thanks to the bill, more than 700,000 Minnesotans are now limited in their ability to use the state and local tax deductions.”
“Minnesotans know a scam when they see one, and the Republican tax bill is a bad deal for our state. Mike Pence should return to Washington and join Democrats in fighting for a tax plan that puts everyday families first.”
