Hudson Valley lawmakers react to Senate GOP tax bill

Posted: Updated:
YONKERS -

Lawmakers in Westchester and the Hudson Valley came out against the early morning passage of the Senate GOP tax plan Saturday. 

Democratic Rep. Sean Maloney pointed out in his tweet that "nothing good happens after midnight." 

Democratic Rep. Eliot Engel also reacted, repeating his criticism that the tax bill was "one of the worst things I have ever seen in Congress." 

Hudson Valley's lone Republican John Faso has not posted on his Twitter feed about the bill's passage. 

Minority Leader Charles Schumer voiced his final objection to the bill just before the vote. He said that the bill is "slanted toward the wealthy and powerful and rains tax increases upon millions of middle-class citizens." 

President Donald Trump said Saturday that he wants to sign this bill by Christmas.
