HALL CONDEMNS HOUSE VOTE TO PASS GOP TAX BILL, SAYING IT WILL HURT HARDWORKING HOOSIERS

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Today, Congressional candidate Mel Hall condemned the passage of the GOP Tax Reform bill, or the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The bill repeals the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act, kicking over 26,000 Hoosiers off healthcare right here in the Second District. Hall is committed to working with all Members of Congress to pass a tax reform bill that would boost the middle class and give hardworking Hoosiers a fair shot.

“As a former CEO, I know what it takes to create jobs and raise wages,” Hall said. “This bill does neither. Instead, Republicans in Congress would rather kick folks off healthcare so the rich can get richer. This bill is a case study in inequality.” 

The bill lowers the tax rate for the richest Americans and repeals the Corporate AMT, showing once again that Jackie Walorski and her fellow Republicans in Congress would rather give tax breaks to corporations and the wealthy instead of growing and strengthening the middle class.
