Small Businesses and America Can’t Afford the Republican Tax Deal

Remarks by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)

The House Republican tax plan will hurt America’s small businesses. While giant corporations receive huge tax giveaways under the House Republican plan, the vast majority of American small businesses get nothing, making it even harder for them to compete. Meanwhile, the plan would explode the national debt, giving congressional Republicans an excuse to slash key investments in infrastructure, education, and critical programs such as Medicare and Medicaid—placing even more strain on communities and the small businesses that serve them. Small business owners need strong public investments in their communities, which help create resilient and sustainable local economies that enable small businesses to thrive.
