The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is a unique forum where the governments of 34 democracies with market economies work with each other, as well as with more than 70 non-member economies to promote economic growth, prosperity, and sustainable development. It’s latest report shows the underlying fallacies of the current U.S. tax reform plan more clearly than any other publication. The worldwide tax trend indicates that tax burdens are shifting to individual income taxes of the working middle class. That’s exactly what this tax reform bill does!
The “Tax Cuts And Jobs Act” is clearly misnamed; an unfortunate trend in recent politics. At it’s core, this bill rewards the richest who don’t need a tax cut, puts us into massive and likely irrecoverable debt, and shifts the future tax-payment burden to the middle class.
The message of the OECD report is clear: we don’t improve the economy by cutting taxes for the wealthy or by putting our nation further into debt.
Now it’s up to Americans to convince the few Republican lawmakers that this is simply a bad idea for our nation. Fortunately, all of my lawmakers are already voting “NO”. But I’m doing my part by sending these messages to swing vote Senators who will ultimately make the difference. I urge you to do the same.
