Letter: Tax bill is bad for working people

I support comprehensive tax reform, but I do not support the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

This irresponsible bill adds at least $1.4 trillion to the deficit and could add as much as $1.7 trillion. The development of the bill completely left out rank-and-file Republicans and all Democrats. The proposal relies on magical thinking about economic growth in order to pretend there won’t be massive increases to the deficit and debt, and uses gimmicks to make it look like the changes in law cost less down the road.

If passed, this bill will hurt every part of our society gravely and burden generations to follow with debt. It is fiscally irresponsible.

This is by far the most harmful thing that the Trump administration is planning to do to the American people.

Call your representatives in Congress and tell them what you think of this disastrous bill.
