30& TAX CUT FOR WEALTHY
Am I the only one who is appalled by the proposed provision to the health care law now in the Senate? Are you appalled?
Why is this provision even in the law? It belongs in the TAX CODE. The 30% TAX CUT FOR THE TOP 1% OF THE WEALTHY is the reason that there are so many cuts to the rest of the health bill.
Don’t let your Senator or Representative tell you on the illusion that Medicaid programs which provide relief for our poorest citizens and which provides desperately needed medical research grants, after-school programs in poor and high-risk areas, etc., help for elderly in nursing homes, etc., is the reason that the cuts have to be made. The reason is to pay for the 30% tax cut for the wealthy can be tacked onto the end of this bill.
Many senators argue that Medicaid serves only 5% of our population and don’t say anything about the fact that this tax cut is benefitting less than 1% of our population.
This proposed law is a disgrace in many ways, but this is the worst.
ARE YOU APPALLED THAT YOUR TAX DOLLARS WILL SOON BE PAYING FOR A 30% TAX CUT FOR THE TOP 1% OF THE WEALTHIEST IN OUR NATION?
I am sickened. This tacked-on bit of legislation belongs in the Tax Code, not in a Health Code Bill. Think of the people it serves— the ones who least need it—at the detriment of those who need assistance the most. Think of the elderly thrown out of nursing homes, the medical research on diseases such as cancer, the single mothers who will no longer have access to after-school facilities, etc. The list goes on and on and on.
Call your state Senator and tell him that you won’t allow it!
