GOP tax proposal benefits wealthy

I am appalled at the GOP budget proposal that includes a tax plan that slashes taxes for the wealthiest Americans and corporations while at the same time cutting funding for safety net programs like Medicaid, reducing the tax deductions that middle class Americans currently have, and taking out huge treasury loans that will be paid for by our grandchildren.

More than 80 percent of the proposed tax cuts will go to the wealthiest one percent of Americans. This tax plan will not create jobs. Trickle-down economics hasn’t worked in the past and it won’t now. Join me in saying “no” to the GOP tax plan. Please call your members of congress, write your friends, and speak out before it is too late!
