Letters: ‘Thanks’ Congress for giving more to the top 1 percent

‘Thanks’ Congress for giving more to the top 1 percent

Congratulations are in order for Congressman Chris Collins and all of his Republican congressional colleagues for their success with the “Millionaires and Billionaires Tax Relief Act of 2017.” That great sucking sound that you hear is the wealth being drawn from the average person up to the 1 percent, and especially, the .1 percent.

Their much touted tax simplification was certainly enhanced by adding about 500 pages of gifts and gimmicks for the benefit of the well connected.

Of course, with an approval rating of around 10 percent, what have they got to lose?
