Doug Jones’s Victory is a Rejection of the GOP Tax Scam

(Washington, DC) — The following is a statement from Alex Lawson, Executive Director of Social Security Works, in reaction to Doug Jones declaring victory in the Alabama Senate election:

“Tonight, Alabama voters did not just reject Roy Moore and the horrific actions he has been accused of. They also rejected the Republican Party’s disaster of a tax bill, which is a handout to billionaires and corporations that they plan to pay for by gutting Medicare, Medicaid, and other vital programs. Once Doug Jones is seated, it will only take one more Republican Senator turning against the tax scam to defeat it.

This should be a lesson to Republican Party leaders that you can’t work against the best interests of 99 percent of Americans and expect to get reelected. Unless they abandon their tax scam and their attack on Medicare and Medicaid, they will share Roy Moore’s fate next November.”

Social Security Works PAC, the political arm of Social Security Works, raised $7,925 for Jones from 489 small dollar donations.
