I am pretty much appalled by the greed of the Republican Party and their failure to listen to the American people. This Jobs and Tax Reform Bill is a scam on the Middle Class and they will realize it when all of the promises made don't materialize. Blaming the Democrats for not participating in the development process of this bill, when it was made abundantly clear by the President in his tweets, and the Leaders of both the House and Senate in their comments to the press, any possible bipartisan negotiations were negated and tainted this partisan bill from the start. It simply won't fly with those of us intelligent enough to see through your lies. In addition, it would take many months, if not years, to thoughtfully put together a piece of legislation that affects all of us. I've lived long enough to see past promises of trickle down economics fail to work. I remember the days when CEOs earned incomes in the low hundreds of thousands, not the current multi-millions that they rake in. The disparity in income growth between workers and management, just over the last 25 years, is ridiculous. Obtaining the votes of those Republicans who originally objected to this bill by adding clauses to sweeten the pot for them without considering the added deficit cost only makes you all look even greedier, not to mention the fact that your personal campaign donors will benefit the most. You are "the swamp" which needs to go, and you will sadly impact those of us across a broad spectrum of this society; the poor who depend upon social programs, the elderly on fixed incomes who depend upon Social Security and Medicare (programs they paid into all of their lives, entitlements not benefits, which the Congress now wants to gut to help pay for the deficit), the disabled who will no longer be able to deduct their extensive medical expenses beyond which their insurance covers, limited sales taxes and mortgage interest in high cost areas, graduate students who will now have to claim their grants as income thus raising their taxes, elimination of the mandatory health insurance requirement which will drive up insurance premiums for everyone and leave millions more without health insurance, and much more than I have time to go into here. I see no current loopholes being closed that are used by the rich to hide their money offshore, yet I see endless extras for those same rich individuals and corporations that line their pockets with millions more and with promises to us that it will encourage them bring that money home and create more jobs and higher incomes. It is a sad day when the Republican Party can no longer be seen as the fiscal conservatives of this country, but as destroyers of our democracy. I would urge you to vote against this legislation and go back to negotiating together as Senator John McCain suggested earlier this year to develop a sound and balanced Tax Reform Bill.
