Dr. Longjohn makes a statement on Upton being named to the tax committee responsible for merging the House & Senate tax bills
Portage, MI – Dr. Matt Longjohn, a public health leader and candidate for Congress in Michigan’s 6th district, today released a statement on Congressman Fred Upton being named to the tax conference committee.
“Congressman Upton played a crucial role in delivering the final votes necessary to pass the Republican health care plan. Now he is going to play a crucial role in putting the final touches on a tax-scam that will protect his corporate and special interest donors. The people of Southwest Michigan need leaders in Congress who will fight tirelessly for the middle class and small businesses, not exclusively billionaires and wealthy corporations.”
