Sanders Calls Trump Tax Plan “Totally Absurd”

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, on Friday criticized President Trump’s tax plan, calling it “totally absurd.”

“What concerns me right now, I have to tell you sitting here in the Congress, is these incredible tax breaks that President Trump and the Republican leadership are proposing,” Sanders said during an appearance on CBS “This Morning.”

“It just seems to me in a time of massive income and wealth inequality, the idea that we would give $353 billion in tax breaks to the top two tenths of one percent while cutting back on education and healthcare and the needs of our children and seniors is, to me, totally absurd.”

The White House on Wednesday released an outline of their plans to lower tax rates for individuals and businesses, calling it the biggest tax cut in U.S. history.
