Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement on Tax Day:
“From the schoolhouse to the Texas Legislature to Congress, Texas Democrats are fighting for every Texan’s fair shot to get ahead.
“A majority of Americans continue to oppose Trump Republicans’ Tax Scam. They know Republicans don’t care about middle-class families or hardworking Texans, they only care about looking out for their corporate donors.
“While Trump, Cornyn, and Republicans continue to hand out massive tax breaks to billionaires and corporations, everyday Texans are stuck with higher property taxes, rising sales taxes, and the devastating economic consequences caused by Trump’s tax hike.
“Texas Democrats believe in building a thriving middle-class economy that works for all Texans, not just corporations and billionaire donors. That’s why in 2020, we will win the White House, take out John Cornyn, take the majority of the Texas congressional delegation, flip the Texas House, and elect hundreds of local Democrats across the state. ”
