Conway Encourages Dems Up for Reelection in 2018 to ‘Listen to Their Constituents’ on Tax Reform

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said the Trump administration was going to work with Congress on the passage of tax reform and urged Democrats to listen to their constituents on the issue, particularly ones up for reelection in 2018.

“We certainly will work with Congress, and that includes Democrats who would like to listen to their constituents and pass meaningful tax reform,” Conway said. “President George W. Bush had the support of 10-12 Democratic senators in June 2001 when his tax overhaul passed. Many of them were up for reelection the following year. Got 25 Democratic senators defending their seats next year. And so a number of them may want to listen to their constituents — the small business owners, the aspiring small business owners in their states.”
