How can the Democratic Party defend what they did by voting en masse against a tax reduction bill for the American people? I don't care how meager it is - if you get a tax reduction bill through Congress, you'd better jump on it as Uncle Sam is loathe to let go. In this case, it was a clear, bonafide reduction for both the people and our businesses.
However, the Democrats refused - not one in favor in either the House or Senate. How can they run on this platform in 2018 and expect to win? Is America going to get behind tax increases?
I was concerned with the outcome of the 2018 elections, but no longer. The Democrats have sealed their continuing role as a minority party with their tax vote of 2017. - Robert Moor, Sioux City
