In First Speech as Budget Chair, Sanders Rebuffs 'Partisanship' Complaints From GOP That Unilaterally Passed $1.9T Gift for Rich
"Eighty-three percent of the benefits of the Trump tax plan went to the 1% and large corporations... There was not one Democrat that voted for that bill."
"There has been some discussion here, the media seems fixated, on the issue of partisanship," said the Vermont senator. "Oh my god, we're being so partisan. So let me remind everybody... under the Trump administration, massive tax breaks were passed that went to the top 1% and large corporations—83% of the benefits of the Trump tax plan went to the 1% and large corporations. And you know how bipartisan that bill was, passed in reconciliation? There was not one Democrat that voted for that bill. It was [passed] just with Republican votes."
