Republican tax bill will make debt worse

Print Article

This new Republican tax bill will add $1.5 trillion to the debt. The Republican Party used to be the party who cared about the debt and spending. This new tax bill will start to harass Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. They already call people on Social Security sorry and lazy. So mark my words, they’re coming for Social Security and Medicare. But the most sad part is that young children in school will now have to pay for this new tax bill, and it’s not fair to them. Nobody in Washington is trying to help students with their student loans, but they’re making students pay for a tax bill giving to the rich and corporations.

Now let me tell the truth about why Republicans rushed to pass this tax bill. They did it for the money corporations donated to them. It’s time for people to wake up and see this new Republican party is not the Reagan Republicans. They have forgotten the people they serve. But in 2018, the people will vote and remind them who they serve. No more Republican votes for me.
