I am sure everything has been said that is worth saying about the budget put forth by the Republican Party, but I wanted to appeal to the common sense of people since it seems to be in short supply in our political arena.

The budget increases borrowing by another trillion or so dollars (I got to tell you, after a million I can't even begin to imagine more), and it also decreases substantially taxes paid by corporations and those who are rich.

Let's ask the burning question: Who do you think is going to pay for all this? It will be the middle income class and those of poorer means because they do not have any political clout. Connect the dots and respond accordingly in the 2018 elections.
