Hey, : you really outdid yourselves on this one. Exploding the deficit while raising taxes on middle class families is a pretty cruel one-two punch, even for you.

So, while your family loses important deductions that help cover everyday costs, corporations will still be able to keep them. That’s not middle class first and that’s not right.

So if this GOP tax bill isn’t for families, teachers, veterans, farmers, students, workers, or those who care about our debt, then who is it for? Big corporations. But don’t take our word for it: “Top Tax Priority of G.O.P. Is to Help Corporations”

Do you care about our nation’s debt and deficit? We do. But the Paul Ryan tax plan would increase the deficit by $1.7 trillion. You read that right. We think that’s fiscally irresponsible.

Paul Ryan’s tax bill would eliminate programs that help veterans get home loans and tax credits for employers that hire our veterans. Why are putting the prosperity of America’s heroes at risk after they’ve served our country?

Teachers who spend their own hard-earned money to buy supplies for their students can no longer deduct those expenses (spoiler alert: corporations still can). That’s just wrong.

8.6 MM Americans count on the medical expense deduction for much needed relief from high health care costs. A tax hike is the last thing they need.

The will force homeowners to pay more just to stay in their homes. It will force teachers to pay out of their own pockets for necessary school supplies. And it will make it harder for veterans to find meaningful work.
