Paul Spencer, Democratic candidate for Arkansas's Second Congressional District, released the following statement today after the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in the House of Representatives.
Candidate Spencer provided the following statement:
Today Representative French Hill and his republican colleagues in the House yet again proved how obedient they are to their campaign donors.
This Tax Bill has been proven as a lie, a scam, and a fraud—not dissimilar from how the people of the Second District are beginning to see their representation. This bill rewards the rich elite and punishes the working class. This should come as no surprise, as Rep. Hill has devoted his entire tenure in the People’s House to serving the former, not the latter.
Also, Rep. Hill is holding a Town Hall on Facebook tomorrow, not coincidentally the day after his vote. How typical of a representative that has no intention to serve—or even listen to—the people and families of Arkansas’s Second District. If this is Rep. Hill’s and President Trump’s idea of a Christmas present, I think we would have just preferred some coal.
