Press Release

Washington, D.C – Today, Congressman José E. Serrano condemned House Republicans for passing their devastating tax legislation, which causes serious harm to residents of the Bronx.   

“This bill is an insult to Bronxites,” said Congressman José E. Serrano. “It harms families, students, seniors and children.  It reduces access to critical tax credits, like the Child Tax Credit, in a way that will hurt the most vulnerable just so billionaires and corporations can get huge tax breaks.  It also explodes our nation’s budget in a way that will threaten Medicare and Medicaid.  I stood up for New York families and voted against this inexplicable Republican act of malice and cruelty.”


Congressman José E. Serrano has represented The Bronx in Congress since 1990.  He is a Senior member of the House Appropriations Committee.
