Democrats are ready to fight with Republicans over tax reform legislation, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Wednesday, the Washington Examiner reported.

"This is going to be one of the biggest fights of the next three, four months, and Democrats are ready for it," the New York senator said as President Donald Trump traveled to Springfield, Missouri to give a speech outlining the GOP tax reform plan as part of a public campaign to garner support for it.

The details of the plan, however, are expected to be determined in large part by the congressional tax-writing committees rather than the White House, The Hill reported.

Earlier this month, 45 of the 48 Senate Democrats signed a letter to Trump and Republican leaders demanding that they not support any legislation that gives new tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans or adds to the deficit, according to Politico.

Schumer warned that if the Republican tax reform plan lowers rates for the wealthy, as expected, then "the American people are going to rise up against it."
