Letter to the Editor: Don’t try to fool us again

Editor:

Fool Americans once, shame on government, but fool Americans twice, shame on the people!

America won’t be fooled by trickle-down economics again. Trump’s “tax reform” is nothing but a giveaway to the wealthiest Americans and to corporations, and a boot on the backs of the middle and working classes.

If we could afford to give tax breaks to anyone, it should be to the real job creators in America: middle-class consumers! But since we’re basically insolvent, the very idea of tax breaks — especially for those who need it least — is governmental malfeasance.

Laura Henderson-Franta, Linden
