A message from my congresswoman early today:

"Highlights of What Congress Did This Week

Passage of the Senate GOP Tax Plan

On Friday in the dead of night the Senate passed its own destructive tax plan. Like the House bill, it showers large multinational corporations with tax breaks at the expense of middle class families. According to the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, the proposal would increase taxes on millions of middle class families. It also repeals the Affordable Care Acts individual mandate which will cause 13 million Americans to lose health insurance and increase premiums by 10% for millions of other Americans. The Senate bill permanently cuts the corporate tax rate from 35% to 20% adding $1 trillion to the national debt.

It bulldozes the state and local tax (SALT) deduction. In our Congressional District nearly 200,000 of my constituents claimed an average of $31,193 in 2015. It sunsets all cuts to personal income tax rates included in the bill in 2025, while keeping lucrative tax cuts in place for large multinational corporations at a time when they are seeing record profits..

The Senate tax bill also opens the Arctic Ocean and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska to destructive oil and gas drilling, threatening air and water quality across the 19 million acres of pristine protected lands.

Now that the Senate has passed its tax bill, the legislation will have to be conferenced with the House version (H.R. 1). The differences must be then reconciled before a final version passes the House and the Senate and then signed into law by the President. Republicans want to see a bill on the Presidents desk before Christmas. I will continue fighting with every fiber of my being to stop this, unfair, unbalanced, and fiscally irresponsible effort that dims the future of our country, robs the middle class and places debt on future generations."
