EricHolder This Republican tax cut bill is an abomination. Hold people who vote for it accountable in 2018, 2020. Simple: if you vote to blow up the debt, give money to the wealthy, turn your back on the middle class, take away health care for millions — get voted out of office.twitter.com/steveschmidtse…f

SenatorTester I was just handed a 479-page tax bill a few hours before the vote. One page literally has hand scribbled policy changes on it that can’t be read. This is Washington, D.C. at its worst. Montanans deserve so much better. pic.twitter.com/q6lTpXoXS0

SenSchumer In my long career in politics, I have not seen a more regressive piece of legislation, so devoid of a rationale, so ill-suited for the condition of the country, so removed from the reality of what the American people need.

@SenatorLankford @JimInhofe Please vote NO on this tax reform bill if it comes to a vote tonight. The number of proposed amendments that you have no time to adequately read and vet is ridiculous and appears to be Washington politics dominated by lobbyists
