No to GOP bill

I am astounded and deeply confused over the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Acts.” Our representatives claim to care about working and middle class people, but here they are attempting to ram through a tax bill that will devastate millions of Americans over the next decade.

GOP leaders are catering to the absurd greed of corporations and the very wealthy, adding $1.4 trillion to the national deficit and clearing the way to justify slashes to essential social services that millions of people rely on.

Case in point: massive tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations will mean that our country can no longer fully fund Medicaid, a program millions of working Americans need to survive. Our social safety net exists to ensure that working people and people trying to get back on their feet can have their basic needs met.

Why do the wealthy need even more money while the rest of us suffer? This is an inhumane, unpatriotic bill that must be stopped. Please call Rep. McMorris Rodgers (202-225-2006) and tell her to vote no on the GOP tax bill.
