R.L. Watson: Clear concern

Clear concern

According to the Republicans’ own calculator, their tax plan will increase the taxes of a family of four earning $30,000 by nearly $1,000, while lowering the taxes of richer people.

They have done us a service. People have long suspected that the GOP is more concerned about moneyed interests than about average people. This plan removes all doubt. The Republican slogan is obviously “Soak the Poor!” and they don’t care who knows it.
