(GOP Tax) "Bill violates values that Jesus taught" , Bridget Mary Meehan, Sarasota Herald Tribune, Nov. 10th

Bill violates values that Jesus taught
The GOP tax plan is a shameful document that betrays every value I hold dear as a person of faith.
How can we give more tax cuts to the wealthy and continue to ignore the needs of the majority of our country, especially the workers struggling to make a living and the poor who have nothing? According to Matthew 25, Jesus said, “Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers and sisters, you do unto me.”
This proposed tax plan is a moral travesty that violates the common good of everyone, except the rich. We need a tax plan that is fair and just for everyone.
Wealthy corporations and individuals do not need more tax breaks that will more than likely be paid for in the future by cuts to programs like Medicare and Social Security.
We, the people, should contact our elected representatives before this tax plan becomes a reality and it is too late.
