Letters to the Editor

Senators, how could you?

To Sens. Roger Wicker and Thad Cochran: How could you give the top 1 percent a tax break — and slash funding for Medicare? How could you raise taxes on nearly half of middle class families — and gut children’s healthcare? And how could you eliminate deductions for student loans — and cut Social Security?

I am furious. And if you think I am going to let these barbaric policies go unanswered, you are wrong.

As a direct response to your tax plan, I’m making a donation to elect Democrats to Congress to replace politicians like you.

This is what your tax plan does:

Households making more than $5 MILLION get an average tax cut of $3OO,OOO, while those making less than $55,OOO get a tax hike.

How does that make any sense?

By crushing the middle class to add to the coffers of the vultures in the top 1 percent , you’ve betrayed the people you swore to protect.

But that ends now. I’m going to do everything in my power to defeat you and I hope anyone who reads this will do the same.
