More than 50 House Democrats oppose tax-cut proposal

Welch wrote that the nation "is wading into fiscal quicksand" by borrowing the money to pay for the bill that "disproportionately favors millionaires and billionaires, threatens our ability to create jobs, grow the middle class and protect seniors," Welch said. 

"Even as Republicans seek to add billions more to our national debt in tax cuts to the wealthy, they oppose extending unemployment benefits to workers and resist COLA [cost of living adjustment] increases to seniors," he said. 

The letter has been signed by Welch and the following members:
