Rep. Doggett Reaction to Republican Refusal to Postpone Thursday’s Tax Vote Despite Evacuation of Over One Million for Hurricane Florence

 

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Congressman Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), a senior member of the House Ways & Means Committee, offered the below comment on the Republican refusal to postpone the tax vote as Hurricane Florence approaches:

“While we knew they didn’t believe in climate change, now House Republicans apparently don’t even believe in hurricanes. Is questioning gravity next? No natural disaster is big enough to slow Republicans from another human-made disaster—borrowing hundreds of billions more to lock in tax breaks for the wealthiest few.”
