This tax legislation is a scam. I really don’t understand how people don’t see right through this, and I really don’t understand how people still believe that “trickle-down” economics works. Nothing trickles down, and nothing is going to get better for the people who need it most. The corruption in this system couldn’t be more clear than it is with the current tax legislation. The only benefits to be seen will be by the very people voting to pass them.

There are hundreds of billions of dollars just sitting in accounts doing no good in the world. But what does our government do? Give the wealthiest people more. We continually lift these people higher and higher while they push us deeper and deeper into the mud. I don’t understand why or how anybody supports and votes for these representatives. I’ll never understand it, and I’ll never stand beside it.

It’s a sad time in our country. For the love of humanity, do everything that you can to end all of this wretchedness, power and greed every opportunity that you get. Elect people who lift us all up, not just the wealthy.
