In the early hours of Saturday morning, the senate passed the #GOPTaxScam. The bill is a dangerous travesty. Because the bill is about 500 pages long with hand-written scribbles and mark-ups, analysts – let alone senators – are just starting to realize the depths of some of its implications. Here’s what we’re learning:

The bill is projected to cost the U.S. $1.4 trillion, with two-thirds of that money going to the top 1%.

Congress’ own Joint Committee on Taxation projects that by 2027, more than 80 percent of U.S. taxpayers wind up with either a tax increase or a benefit of less than $100.

And we’ll all pay for it, with cuts to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, and also affordable housing programs, public transportation services, Pell Grants, and so much more.

The bill also is projected to drive 13 million people from health insurance, likely causing the Affordable Care Act to implode.

The Senate bill changes the treatment of state and local taxes, which could impact Kentucky’s budget for schools and roads.

The bill also opens up more protected federal land in Alaska to oil drilling.

Check out this article for some of the other nuggets in the bill that are just being discovered, including provisions that could impact access to reproductive health and the political activity of churches.

The bill is headed to a conference, where the Senate and the House will work to reconcile their two bills. That means that it’s not over yet. Your voices and actions are vital.

I'm very excited that tax reform will soon be passed! Shameful that some people think people shouldn't be able to keep more of their own money! I have done research on the tax bill, and it will be of benefit to me, and I make less than 30k a year. The Obamacare mandate tax, if included in the cuts will save me over $1000.00 a year. They keep saying people will "lose insurance". I can't afford the insurance now, or the tax for not having insurance. I have already written to my senators to ask them to please work hard to pass the tax cuts. Sure hope everyone else who would like to keep more of their OWN money will too! With the electric company going to increase the rates for everybody, this will help provide some much needed relief.
