A letter delivered to Rep. Fred Upton on Monday, Dec. 4, 2017
We the undersigned urge you to vote NO on the upcoming tax bill, the so-called H.R.1 – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
This bill is a massive transfer of wealth from the poor and working class to the top 1%.
It will result in cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, education, and many other programs
needed in our district such as help for agriculture.
Giving massive tax cuts to the largest corporations has been shown in the past to not create jobs,
since they simply use that money for stock buy-backs.
Repealing the ACA mandate to have insurance will result in millions losing coverage and premiums rising for everyone else.
To add insult to injury, tucked in the 500 pages is language to start drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Any cut to middle class taxes is largely cancelled out by eliminating deductions such as state and local taxes.
This is a corporate give-away boondoggle disguised as a middle class tax cut.
