Tax law’s effect on lower-income families

To the Editor:

The GOP tax plan as written is for the rich, written by the rich (Trump).

Borrowing a paragraph from Center on Budget and Policy Priorities:

“Meanwhile, low and middle income working families will fare far less, with millions of them facing tax increases even before the individual tax cuts for them expire. And when those tax cuts expire, 23 million with incomes below $75,000 will face tax increases of over $100 a year, with an additional 88 million families in this income range largely left out of the tax cut, they’ll face tax increases or decreases less than $100, even as the corporate remain in place. (According to Joint Committee of Taxation data.)”

Mueller hired 16 lawyers, one that is fluent in Russian, and has also added agents from IRS Criminal Investigation Division — its 2,500 agents focus exclusively on financial crime, including tax evasion and money laundering.

I wonder what all the crying is about when there was none in the beginning. Is it that they’re getting close to Trump and GOP stonewalling (Nunes, House Intel Committee)?

U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded “with high confidence” that the Russian government interfered with the election by hacking computer servers of the Democratic National Committee and personal Gmail account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, and forwarded their contacts to WikiLeaks.
