This week I called my U.S. senators to express my opposition to the GOP tax bill. I’ve been calling about this for a few weeks now, but this week their ugly bill got even uglier. A CBO analysis found that the House version would trigger a $25-billion cut to Medicare and another $111-billion in mandatory cuts from other sequestered budgets and repealing the Obamacare individual mandate – as the Senate bill now does – would make 14 million more Americans uninsured by 2027 and raise premiums an additional 10% for families who buy their own health insurance. That premium hike would more than offset many working families’ small initial tax cuts – and most families’ taxes would increase within a few years – all to throw even more money at billionaires and big business. Please call or write your senators and representatives and urge them to stop this madness.
