Letter to the Editor - Whose children are left behind?

President Trump and Republicans in control of Congress are pushing hard for major tax cuts before the end of the year. They want a “win,” to show they can get things done in Washington. But who exactly are the winners in these tax cuts? For whom are they getting things done? Answer: the wealthiest Americans, billionaires and millionaires.
