Following a decision by House bill that would slash corporate taxes among the rich and slap middle class families with higher taxes, the President of End Citizens United, Tiffany Muller, released a statement citing that this would be a big step towards undermining democracy. He explained that the GOP tax plan would raise taxes on working and middle class families while giving the wealthiest an undue advantage because they would enjoy lower taxes. His view on these developments was that there is urgent need to elect members of Congress with the passion to help in the reform of the governance system to accommodate everyone through fair tax plans.
Influence of the donor class
One of the issues cited as to cause the leaders to make reforms that are harsh to the working class is the fact that there has been an influence from the donor class who control The Republican. These include corporate wealthy individuals, and their effect has been so huge that the Republican lawmakers are forced to pass a tax bill that largely favors their demands. This means House Republicans are not going to sweat any details as everything they respond to is originally formulated by their donors, who are said to have put them in office.
But why can’t the Republicans just pass the tax reforms without the influence so meted on them by the donors? The reason is there is the fear these donors might abandon them and put to risk their chances of having a majority in 2018. So, this remains a game of two players and the parties that are affected most are the middle and working class who have to embrace whatever reforms are introduced. Doing contrary to the demands of the donors would trigger a loss of financial support that emanates from mos ents were to the effect that they would withdraw their financial support to the party if the proposed tax cuts would be stalled for whatever reason.
What explains the Republican Party’s reckless rush to pass this tax bill?
It boils down to two words: Citizens United https://t.co/g0Ixpc1IJ5
