MANCHIN VOTES AGAINST MOTION TO PROCEED ON SENATE REPUBLICAN TAX PLAN
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement on his vote against the motion to proceed on the Senate Republican Tax Plan.
“Today I voted against the motion to proceed on the Republican Tax Plan because I haven’t seen a final bill. I haven’t been able to review any legislation or see a Congressional Budget Office score to consider its impacts on West Virginia. I am still trying to work with my Republican colleagues and the Trump Administration to find a bipartisan way forward. I will continue to try to work across the aisle in the hopes that Republicans will slow down and work with us. The working people of West Virginia know that our country needs tax reform but we must work together to truly achieve comprehensive, bipartisan reform that allows the middle class, small businesses and our economy to grow and thrive.”
