Get the facts on the tax bill

Updated 1/4/2018 3:39 PM

There are a number of things about the tax bill that I do not agree with but those who comment that the bill will raise taxes on middle America and denies health care to millions need to be better informed.

They should ignore the nonsense espoused by the Democrat leadership. The bill lowers the tax rate on every income bracket. The 70 percent of tax payers who do not itemize their deductions will be pleased to see their standard deduction has been doubled. The vast majority of middle America will see their tax liability go down. The bill does not restrict or deny health care to any individual. It simply eliminates the fine for not signing up for health care.
