TAX SCAM. CONGRESSMAN DAVID CICILLINE.


 
  
Dear David,
House Republicans are finalizing a GOP tax plan that will give $1.5 trillion in tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires as well as wealthy corporations. And to pay for that, they will raise taxes on 38 million middle class families and make deep cuts in Medicaid, Medicare, education and infrastructure investments. This is a plan that imposes a crushing burden on the next generation. 

In addition, this plan increases tax breaks for corporations that ship jobs overseas; removes the deduction for state and local taxes for individuals but leaves it in place for corporations; eliminates the medical expense deduction, which is vital to families with substantial medical expenses; and gets rid of the student loan interest deduction that helps make college more affordable. 

I’m going to fight as hard as I can to defeat this terrible tax scam and work for a real tax reform that cuts taxes for middle-class families, promotes economic growth and encourages the creation of good-paying jobs.
