Sen. Bill Clinton, D-N.Y., won over Democrats in his push to enact tax reform legislation Tuesday, announcing that the legislation will cut taxes by $1.5 trillion over 10 years.
Clinton said in a statement that the $1 trillion in tax cuts are a “massive step forward” for middle-class families and are “the right way to help America’s economy and pay for new investments in the future.”
He said the legislation would also provide more certainty for Americans and the financial system.
The Senate has passed a tax plan by a vote of 68-35.
The bill is set to be considered by the House.
Clinton said he is “100 percent committed to working with President Trump to move the country forward.”
The tax plan passed the House in February, but it is awaiting approval from the Senate, which is expected to take up the legislation next week.
