The Tax Plan is a Scam
December 6, 2017
The Republican Tax Plan is a total scam and will only benefit the very wealthy. It will be a huge transfer of wealth from the middle class to the upper class. Their plan makes permanent tax breaks for the wealthy and ends what little benefit there is for the other taxpayers by 2027. This plan will add an estimated $1.5 trillion dollars to the deficit.
Increasing the deficit sets up the situation so they can justify cuts to programs that benefit everyone. Think your Medicare and Social Security are safe? Think again, these programs will be cut. The cuts will be devastating. Don’t take my word for it, do some research. Two places to get some really good information is at cbpp.org
Act quickly and make calls to Representative Greg Gianforte at 202-225-3211 and Senator Steve Daines at 202-224-2651 and tell them to vote no. We have a small window of time to make our voices heard before they pass the tax bill that will not benefit the majority of this country.
