Squeezed out by the rich

The contemplated so-called “tax reform” is a windfall for the rich and Trump. Lowering the top bracket to 4.9 percent for people that make millions is an insult to the middle-class and poor.

There’s little for the middle class-and nothing for the poor. The lowering of corporate tax from 35 percent to 20 percent will not expand businesses. It will increase corporate officers’ pay and bonuses.
