As The New Mexican editorial pointed out (“Focus on taxes despite distractions,” Our View, Nov. 17), the tax bill that has already been passed by the House is being lost in the shuffle. Who wants to read about boring taxes? We do.

The tax bill is moving along without much attention. While we are caught up in more interesting topics, the House proceeded with major tax legislation that will have a heavy toll for middle-class and low income taxpayers. The corporate tax goes from 35 percent to 20 percent, while the top 1 percent of the financial pyramid eventually will get huge tax cuts. We are taking from the poor to give to the rich.

Not only that — this legislation is being voted on by some who are very rich and who will benefit. The Republican legislators in the House have done the bidding of the powerful millionaires and the well-funded lobbies. We do matter. Let your senators know how you feel, today.
