Nashville, Tenn. (December 15, 2017) – Following the news that Senator Corker will support the Republican tax plan, Mary Mancini, Chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party, released the following statement:

“Republicans always cite the deficit and debt as a problem when they want to pass policy that hinders growth and opportunity for working people. But every Tennessee Republican member of congress from Diane Black and Marsha Blackburn to Bob Corker is supporting this bill that not only raises taxes on working families, cuts Medicare, and throws millions of people off their health care but also raises our deficit by 1 trillion dollars.”
