Maine 1st District Rep. Chellie Pingree, a Democrat, said Wednesday that the Republican tax plan will hurt Mainers, and she urged her House colleagues to reconsider their support.
In a speech on the House floor, Pingree said she has been meeting with Mainers to talk about the tax proposal and its potential impact on Mainers.
“I recently sat down with Mainers who are terrified of the Republican tax plan," Pingree said. "In tears, a high school teacher listed the items she purchased for her students in need. Under this plan, she will no longer be able to deduct them.”
