[see also “Protests rage as Meehan, Costello vote for GOP tax plan,” Daily Local News, 11/16/17)}. Congratulations to all 3 Chesco congressmen for raising their impressive “Trump Scores” by 4 recent votes since we last looked on Oct. 24. Smucker now boasts a near-perfect 98.1%, Costello 94.0%, and Meehan 88.7% in this measure of how often their votes agree with the Trump position.
Calling on Costello (R-PA 6)
Friday Nov. 17, 11:30am to 1pm

On-street parking or the Bicentennial Parking Garage at 20 South High Street, West Chester.
We will protest outside as a large group; then rotate into the office in small groups to speak with staff and deliver letters, if permitted.
This week’s focus: The GOP Tax Bill will put us in the poor house!
The Tax Plans of the House & Senate differ but the common theme is drastic cuts in taxes that will put the United States even further in debt. The Senate bill shows a rosy future with economic growth spurred by their bill and yet, even with the optimistic growth projections, the cuts in revenue are NOT OFFSET! It’s still a net increase on our national debt.
How will we pay for this increased national debt? $1.5T cuts to Medicaid and Medicare and to a lot of other important programs that benefit all of us. So that corporations and the wealthiest among us can see huge tax cuts.
Don’t let the GOP sell us all out with promises of tax cuts.
The GOP Joint Budget Resolution identified $1T of cuts to Medicaid and almost $500B in cuts to Medicare to offset the effect of the drastic tax cuts the GOP is proposing.
Don’t the let GOP sell us all out with promises that these tax cuts will spur economic benefit to everyone. They will certainly help the very wealthiest but will they help most people? Past history proves the answer is a clear no.
The GOP tax scam will leave us all so much deeper in debt that it will mean drastic cuts to Medicaid & Medicare and a lot of other important programs.
