Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Passage of Senate Tax Bill

"The American Dream rests on four pillars that mean the world to our families and communities: employment, education, health care, and housing. The tax bill passed narrowly in the Senate strikes recklessly at that foundation, giving a hand to billionaires and corporations and a boot to working people and the middle class. It is as illogical as it is immoral, but Congress still has another chance to get this right for the American people — by putting principle over party, and our values ahead of stock values." — Mayor Eric Garcetti
