“...the Senate passed a rushed-through tax bill that disproportionately benefits the wealthy and corporations,”
Who pays the bulk of the taxes?
40% pay no taxes and still demand a cut/check.
You cannot cut taxes for people who pay no taxes. How is this difficult for people to understand?
What you can do for people who pay no taxes is improve their situation by growing the overall economy and that’s what the tax cuts are designed to do.
