Letter to the editor: Recent change in tax law is a bad deal for most

OK, now we’ve entered a new year after the Trumpublicans have rammed through the most egregiously unfair tax overhaul that gives corporations and the wealthy the overwhelming amount of tax reductions and loopholes, while leaving most of us the crumbs that will be rescinded in a few years anyway, and probably end up costing most of us by eliminating a lot of deductions. And, how do you think they intend to pay for this estimated $1.4 trillion hit to the budget to make up for it?
How about reducing entitlements that many of us rely on, like Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security, not to mention all the other vitally important programs that keep our environment clean, protect us from irresponsible business practices, and keep us healthy! That’s what this party has been trying to do since SS was passed back in the 30s! Do you actually believe that businesses are going to invest in creating all the jobs they say and reducing the deficit? This is “Trick”le down economics at it’s best — malarkey.
It’s amazing how this repugnant president and his party are adored by the fewer and fewer supporters and apologists who still watch Fox News.
