Cuts and Jobs Act

EVANSVILLE, Indiana – Edith Hardcastle, president of Indivisible Evansville, released the following
statement after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law today:

“We are extremely disappointed in Congressman Bucshon and Senator Young. Both representatives
voted against their constituents by voting yes on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This was a historically
unpopular bill—and for good reason. The consequences will be dire for the middle class. Republicans
claim their corporate tax cuts will create jobs and increase wages. Evidence suggests the opposite will
happen. Republicans claim their bill will make the tax code simpler and fairer. In fact, the bill does little to
simplify the tax code, and wealthier families get bigger tax cuts. And, while individual tax cuts expire,
those for corporations do not.

We urge Hoosiers to contact Congressman Bucshon and Senator Young and tell them they will be held
accountable for their votes. We also urge Hoosiers to contact Senator Donnelly and thank him for fighting
for the middle class by voting against this disastrous bill. Indivisible Evansville will continue its efforts to
build constituent power and replace Larry Bucshon in Congress. We will not forget his vote. We will not
move on. We will replace him with a representative who holds our values and who will fight for his
constituents, not his donors.”
