Press Release

Charlotte, N.C—Today, Congresswoman Adams made the following statement ahead of Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to Charlotte to promote the GOP Tax Scam.

“Since passing the GOP Tax Scam, Republicans have worked overtime to sell this disastrous legislation to the American people. We’re not buying it,” said Congresswoman Adams. “Speaker Ryan and his Republican friends passed this bill that adds $1.6 trillion to the national deficit to give tax breaks to corporations and wealthy campaign donors. Now, they’re using the exploding debt to justify cuts to critical domestic programs such as SNAP and Medicare. Vice President Pence is coming to Charlotte to recite Speaker Ryan’s talking points but the numbers don’t lie. This bill is bad for North Carolinians and bad for the American people.”
