I can’t decide which part of the GOP tax plan is crazier: the tax cut for private jets or the one for golf course owners? It might be a draw. Honestly, I’m not sure there’s a feature of this plan that isn’t completely ludicrous. Big thanks to all the volunteers and community leaders who hit the streets this week. Let’s keep the pressure on and make sure that working people don’t end up footing the bill for the jet-setting lifestyles of the billionaire class.
AROUND THE STATE
A superteam made up of grassroots organizations, faith groups, and unions held rallies across the state in opposition to the GOP tax plan. Rallies were held in Buffalo, Syracuse, Corning, Binghamton, Utica, Long Island, and New York City.
