Rep. Clyde Votes Against Swamp's Tax Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congressman Andrew Clyde (GA-09) released the following statement after voting against H.R. 7024, the so-called “Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act of 2024,” which ultimately passed tonight by a vote of 357-70:


“From welfare expansion to inflationary deficits, the Swamp’s tax bill is a Trojan Horse for bad policies disguised as tax relief,” said Clyde. “For example, the legislation completely fails to close a loophole that allows illegal aliens to claim the Child Tax Credit while subsequently expanding these welfare payments. It is utterly irresponsible to incentivize illegal immigration, swell the flawed welfare state, and generate $155 billion in new federal deficits over the next 20 months — especially as President Biden’s self-inflicted border and economic crises continue to devastate our nation. I ultimately voted against this legislation, as I refuse to impose additional inflationary burdens on hardworking Northeast Georgians who are already struggling to make ends meet under failed ‘Bidenomics’ policies.”


This afternoon, Rep. Clyde railed against the legislation on the House floor: “This tax bill advances policies that only worsen the chaos and fuel the border crisis. It’s a magnet for more illegal immigration, and I encourage all Members to vote against it. Americans simply deserve better.
