GOP donors happy

I am writing to express my deep concern with, and opposition to, the GOP tax bill. With more than three-quarters of the tax benefits going to the top 20 percent of taxpayers and foreign investors, this is not truly a bill designed for the average American.

Further evidence of this is that cuts for corporations are permanent, while cuts for average individuals are temporary. While Barack Obama was president, the GOP was concerned about the deficit, but this tax plan will explode the deficit, triggering cuts to Medicare and more.

While this tax plan makes GOP donors happy, it is not in the best interests of your constituents. I am deeply disappointed that any of my members of Congress are supporting it.
