After failing to pass their TrumpCare bill through the Senate (thanks to your constituent power), Republicans in both the House and Senate are turning to "tax reform."
Here's the first thing to know: this is not going to be true tax reform. Calling it "tax reform" suggests they intend to close corporate loopholes or address the growing wealth inequality that the current tax code fuels. But that’s not what Republicans have in mind.
Instead, they want tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations paid for by slashing Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security down the line. Since they want to pass their tax cut plan through the Senate with only 51 votes, they have to follow the rules of reconciliation. That means they want to use the same secretive, partisan process they tried when they tried to pass TrumpCare—but this time, they want to use it to give their wealthy donors a huge tax cut at the expense of middle-class Americans.
