How exactly does it make sense for the rich to pay less taxes? can someone explain that to me since im clearly missing something. The middle class and below are the ones who need a tax break if anything. They have this entire bill backwards and this is incredibly upsetting. So many other things factor into family expenses, especially if you are not in the top 20%! You think someone making 115K a year is struggling to pay rent or buy food? why does the senate think we are stupid? The only way to fix this is to educate the masses so that the top 20% cannot control us anymore.
