PHOTO BY MARK POETKER The devil of the GOP tax plan being promoted by President Trump and Congressional Republicans is in the details, Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-8th District) said on Saturday while speaking with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) during a boisterous rally against the GOP plan, which he called “an assault on the middle class.”
Speaking before more than 300 people in Bethesda Saturday morning, Raskin was adamant about the challenges he said the Democrats face in stopping the tax plan.
“We’ve gotta get into the weeds because that’s where the snakes are,” Raskin said. He also told his constituents that the 426-page bill is “of, by, and for the billionaires,” compared with Abraham Lincoln – who Raskin called “the last great Republican President” – and his idea of government “of, by, and for the people.”
