Let’s just say that this tax bill is another ploy to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. All this does is move more money to the political donors who need it the least and takes away from poor people who are struggling. You must remember how the government bailed out banks and financial institutions in 2008. So what did these companies do? They gave millions to CEOs in bonuses but let millions lose their homes.

The GOP will argue that it’s a trickle-down effect. Giving to the wealthy will boost the economy because they will increase wages and share the wealth. Hogwash. The only thing trickling down out of Washington these days is spite, immaturity and hate. Because of President Donald Trump, it’s embarrassing to be an American.

Not only is the president setting a terrible example, this attitude is filtering down to everyday life. Now folks are saying and doing things that people only used to think about are being said out loud. The only things trickling down is selfishness and greed. Hooray for me and to hell with you.

Time to stand up and really take this country back for our grandkids at least. Merry Christmas.
