LETTERS FROM THE COMMUNITY

 

November 29, 2017

The Senate GOP tax cut will throw lower and middle income people under the bus. That plan gives major tax cuts and benefits to millionaires and those earning over $100,000. That is very few people in Klickitat County. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) stated the senate bill would add $1.4 trillion to the deficit over the next ten years. $1,400,000,000,000! Twelve zeros!

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the House bill, which Rep. Jamie Herrrera Beutler "proudly voted for," will increase the housing crisis and leave millions of people uninsured! Very important to Washington and Klickitat County.

 Washington State would lose financing for over 2,000 affordable homes that would otherwise be built in the next two years, including homes for large families, people with disabilities and seniors.

It is time for every one of us to tell our congress to work for us, we the people, and not give our hard-earned money to the wealthy.
