If we want a government that actually works well, we need to hold our political leaders accountable when they engage in a process that goes against open, democratic principles.
The proposed GOP tax plan is a mess. It was cobbled together in a rushed frenzy behind closed doors. Instead of our Congress working towards a plan that actually reforms our tax system for the betterment of our society, they came up with a something that:
1) rewards the donors to the Republican party with massive tax cuts
2) explodes the national debt
3) explicitly punishes Democrats in multiple ways
We can do better! We can be working together, sitting down and listening to each other, hashing out ideas that have the best chance at accomplishing well-thought-out goals.
