It's always a scam from Republicans. Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (D-Wash) calls them out on her Facebook page:



Does the #GOPTaxPlan treat corporations and individuals the same in terms of who gets to keep deductions and who doesn’t? Nope, not even close.

The #GOPTaxScam eliminates deductions used by students, families and seniors, yet maintains the same deductions for corporations. What’s worse, while the wealthiest receive most of the tax cuts in this plan, some #middleclass families could see their taxes increase. Sadly, my Republican colleagues chose not to listen to the hardworking Americans who are just looking for a little fairness and relief in our #taxcode. Instead, they voted for tax cuts for corporations, adding trillions to the deficit, paid for on the backs of future generations.


And here she is in a hearing:

DelBene: A few questions: Will a teacher in my district who buys pens, pencils, paper for his students be able to deduct these costs from his tax plan under this plan?

GOP: Uh, H.R. 1 would repeal the above the line deduction for teacher expenses.

DelBene: Will a corporation that buys pens, pencils and paper from its workers be able to deduct those costs from its tax returns under this plan?

GOP: Uh, the general deduction for ordinary and necessary business expenses by any business entity is not changed. It need not be…

DelBene: So they would.

and thats just the inequality with the middle class that's on display here. its even worse with the poorest who are not even part of the discussion of how they will be affected by the legislation.

Too many conservatives HATE education and people who have educations.

Yep. You can't have an education and be an educated person and vote for a Donald Trump for president unless...you're an asshole.
