Washington, DC (January 12, 2021) — In a tweet today, Sen. Bernie Sanders said, “Republicans used budget reconciliation to pass massive tax breaks for the rich and large corporations with a simple majority vote. As the incoming Chairman of the Budget Committee, I will fight to use the same process to boldly address the needs of working families.”
“JCN predicted this would happen. Last week, I wrote an op-ed in FoxBusiness.com warning that a Democrat-controlled Senate will raise taxes and push a left-wing agenda. Senator Sanders is leading the push and many others will follow. America’s small businesses cannot afford a record tax hike. Americans are already suffering from the Covid pandemic and government-imposed lockdowns. More taxes will only lead to more unemployment, lower wages, and more despair. Democrats and Republicans must come together and oppose socialism. The American people overwhelmingly reject socialism and Members in both parties must do the same.”
