TAX PLAN RIDDLED WITH GLITCHES

Lawmakers are working at breakneck speed to pass a revised tax plan by December 22nd, but rushing leaves room for unintended errors. This issue is too important to rush and conservatives and liberals alike need to take a thoughtful, measured approach to changing the tax code. And, with unemployment rates at historic lows and corporate profits at record highs, maybe now isn't the time to cut benefits to the working class and tax rates for corporations. Maybe Congress needs to focus on balancing the budget and addressing wasteful spending so that our tax dollars pay for human services and infrastructure improvements rather than interest on the deficit.
