What is this bill that keeps get buried in the crazy news these days. President Trump initially mentioned that it could lower taxes, but it has been discovered that the tax bill is actually a tax hike for many folks who are not ultra-wealthy.
From the Washington Post: The GOP tax plan is moving forward. It’s a big scam on Trump’s base.
“Everyone always knew Republicans were going to cut taxes for the wealthy. They’re Republicans; that’s what they do. But it’s a genuine surprise to see them raising taxes on people with more modest incomes. Why isn’t this being angrily decried by all those conservatives who believe that tax increases are a crime against humanity? Could it possibly be that they don’t really care about the middle class as much as they say? Was the whole point of this exercise to cut taxes on corporations and the wealthy, and if regular people have to pay more so those at the top can pay less, then that’s fine with them?”
Montanans have chosen to respond to the tax hike scam with statewide educational events, forums and protests to make sure their voices are heard all the way back in Washington D.C.
Here are the details of the events planned:
