In voting for the GOP tax bill, Fortenberry betrayed his constituents. This legislation will blow up the deficit and raise taxes on many in the middle class – all to deliver a tax cut to the special interests and the top 1%. This was a major lost opportunity to achieve real tax reform. Instead, Fortenberry and the GOP chose to go it alone and pass the bill by a narrow margin on a straight party line vote. The next time we get the chance to enact tax reform, there must be hearings, expert testimony and bi-partisanship. Any tax reform must benefit the middle class and not increase the deficit. We deserve better.
