Our Congressman, Jeff Denham, is holding tax cuts for middle and lower class Americans hostage until he gets approval for additional class cuts for the 2 percent of Americans with the most money in the country.

The 2 percent didn’t elect Jeff Denham, and he would be well advised to take a walk around his district and see the hardships those of us who did elect him have to live with every day.

Those to whom he wishes to give a tax break are not creating jobs for us, they are laying us off and sending American jobs overseas so they can increase their already bloated profits. They will take these additional tax cuts and do more of the same.

Profits to corporations owned by the mega rich are at an alltime high and corporate taxes are at a 30 year low, and yet they refuse to be responsible citizens and take care of the people in the country that provided their path to wealth ... and want to pay even less in taxes.

Shame on them, and shame on Jeff Denham if he continues to advocate for tax cuts for the top 2 percent.
