In a video released shortly after House Republicans unveiled a tax plan they claim "is for the middle class families in this country who deserve a break," Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) argued---consistent with independent analyses---that the GOP's proposals would in fact primarily reward large corporations and wealthy individuals while slashing programs low-income and middle class Americans need to survive.
"Republicans are planning to rain about $2 trillion in tax giveaways down on giant corporations," Warren said, explaining that the central beneficiaries of the Trump-GOP "scam" will be Wall Street banks and billionaires, not the working class. "We're talking, once again, about a system that's been rigged right here in Washington---rigged so that the richest, thinnest slice at the top gets more and more, and they kick dirt in everybody else's face."
