Congress needs to hear from you | Letter to the editor

To the editor

Growing the economy “from the middle out” is an excellent idea. (“Passage of Republican tax bill gives corporations and the very wealthy ‘more tax breaks they don’t need’” by Senator Murray, Bainbridge Island Review, Dec. 4, 2017)

The current tax bill’s top-down approach hasn’t worked the last two times it was tried.

If Congress is to change the current path which gives tax breaks to the rich and corporations at the expense of the vast majority of Americans, then we need to speak up. Call, write or visit your senators and representative and ask your friends across the country to do the same! If no one speaks up, nothing changes.
