The 2018 budget resolution passed by the House last week is a dishonest attempt to legislate a new tax plan that will be a disaster for our country.

It raises taxes on the poorest Americans while lowering taxes on the wealthy. This tax cut increases the national debt and make investments vital to generating good jobs and future economic growth impossible.

It's nothing but "voodoo economics" based on the disproven trickle-down theory. Will Rogers had it right when he said “money trickled up. Give it to the people at the bottom and the people at the top will have it before night, anyhow. But it will at least have passed through the poor fellows hands.”

The plan eliminates deductions for children and raise taxes on families. But it lowers taxes on single people and couples with no children. Is this supporting families?

Sen. Bob Corker called the White House “an adult day care center” today. It looks like Congress is in the adult day care business too!
