They make permanent tax breaks for corporations but sunset cuts for low- and middle-income families and so that in 10 years, working families will see billions in additional tax hikes while the big corporations are still protected. It isn’t fair. It isn’t right.

In their attempt to deliver tax cuts for the 1% rather than for middle-income families, not only seeks to add an incredible $1.5 trillion to our natl debt, but now want to add a partisan provision that would drop the floor out of the health insurance market.
