If you think your representative should vote for the tax reform and jobs bill when it comes out of committee –
did you realize that
you are asking him/her to vote against your own interests?
The bill sounds OK. It sounds as if the middle class and even the lower middle class will get a tax cut.
Who doesn’t like more money in his/her pocket?
But did you know that your government, the government of we the people, is planning to
give you a tax cut in one bill and take it back
in the same bill and also in the budget bill that they plan
to follow up with.
If this tax bill passes up to 13 million Americans
could lose their health insurance.
Even if that is not you, the loss will affect everyone
because these folks will either
avoid doctors or use the emergency room
for primary care. Our past experiences tell us that
this will cost all of us in indirect ways.
GOP Congressmen and women also intend to incur a
1.5 trillion addition to the deficit by cutting
corporate taxes a lot
but they need to offset that somehow. They
plan to do that by cutting Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security (they will call it something else, perhaps
block grants, or privatizing, or a voucher plan).
Here’s how the wealthy will look after this tax plan
This is how we the people will look if
They pass this tax (and jobs) plan.
(The jobs are produced by magical thinking.)
