Tax reform not a cure

To the Editor:

Deception and lack of transparency are associated with this tax reform. I watched an interview with a rich C.E.O. who stated we don't need this tax change. The middle class needs the money most. He stated that he had more than enough money to figure out what to do with. A large group of Wall Street investors at a conference were asked what they would do with the money savings to stimulate the economy. The response was laughter. Instead of the costly tax reform we need to stimulate the economy by creating jobs by updating infrastructure, educating future workers that satisfy the demands of employers and increase wages. We don't need to cut Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and to do more damage to Obama Care to help it fail. We need to fix and focus on the problems with Obama Care. Educating future workers while you eliminate tuition deductions is no solution. This tax reform is not a cure, it's a cancer for the middle class. We are being sold out to save the reputation of the Republican Party. This tax reform isn't necessary to stimulate an economy that's doing well on its own. The middle class needs to be stimulated. These politicians are totally out of touch with the middle class. Middle class wages suffer from stagnation.

Food for thought.

The shift of complimentary incentive money to the rich to miraculously boost the economy might not be the reasoning behind this move. Thats just camoflage. I believe their alternative motivation is to cut all the socialistic programs. A party made excuse to cut.
To cover the deficit Republicans will be eager to cut all the programs they have wanted to get rid of. Social Security, Medicare, medicare, health care etc.
Doing good has never been surrounded by so much lying.

Companies that can afford to give employees pay raises are choosing to invest in technology and automation instead. The economy is growing and is projected to increase by 4 % next year without Republican stimulus The only think the tax stimulus will do is increase the next generations debt.

Economy to improve by 4% next year regardless of tax reform.
Major employers are doing very well and could afford to give wage raises but instead they are investing that money in technology and automation.
