    Do you like the GOP tax bill that will increase the deficit by $1 trillion?

    If hate it then I ask you, did you contact your 2 senators that represent you via email or phone? Since 1971 the middle class has lost 30% of its wealth What this bill does is  take $8 billion from the middle class to give to the top .01%. Proverbs 22:16 He that harms the poor increases his own affliction and he that gives to the rich suffers loss to his soul.

    God has nothing to do with this, and the simple solution is to replace the income tax entirely with a National Sales Tax and not even a Flat Tax. The Flat Tax still uses the Income and that means no real change. The NST will remove the need for the bulk of the IRS and it also gets rid of the Internal Revenue Code. And it is that code that gives the rich the escape from paying their fair of the tax burden.

    You are looking at this TAX situation in the wrong light.

    Ask why both the left and the rights want to keep the income tax system?

    Senate Republicans' tax scam is not guaranteed. Trump and McConnell can afford to lose only two Republican votes — three would sink the bill. The next vote begins TODAY at 11:00 AM. There is still time to get in another call.

    Call your Senator here:
    To call your Member of Congress:
    US Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121

    To locate your Senator on-line for direct phone number then go to
    www.senate.gov

    This is like really important. If they put a 'trigger' in there it is going to totally suck to be us.

      Massive permanent tax cuts go to corporations and the wealthy, while the crumbs to the middle class are small and temporary. It imposes a mountain of debt on our children and grandchildren.

      The massive tax cut has never changed it is called the Internal Revenue Code and it doesn't favor wage earners. The wealthy don't make their fortune by earning wages. This is the shell game, and calling congress is not the answer. Prob is bipartisan.

      Doesn't have any arguments on my comments.
      Sort of like Hillary's presidential platform. "We hate Trump" "Don't vote for Trump".

      Both parties are at fault on the tax bill and they have been at fault since 1913. IRC is major problem

      US GDP growth rate from 2006 to 20016 - the last ten years have been the following in order; 2.7%, 1.8%, -0.3%, -2.8% 2.5%, 1.6%, 2.2%, 1.7%, 2.6%, 2.9%, 1.5% BUT the FAKE MATH of GOP is based on 2.9% steady for TEN YEARS. That's insane to assume.

      Red Herring Alert --- distraction alert.
      We don't need any data, we can feel the difference since Trump became president.

    Not a big fan. At a minimum, the tax plan should have been balanced between corporate tax cuts and more urgent relief for working-class and middle-class workers. I'm not convinced that any trickle-down plan will keep pace with automation.
