Letter: Tax bill even worse than you knew

There have been many informative and factual letters written to The Columbian regarding the Republican’s “cut taxes for the rich and screw the middle class” tax plan. I appreciate each and every one of them. They’ve said it all.

I can only add this sad fact: In the Senate version of the tax bill, there is a provision to open oil drilling in the largest wildlife refuge in Alaska, known as “America’s Serengeti” (www.alaskawild.org/americas-serengeti-needs-your-help). It’s tucked in this bill because it wouldn’t pass as a bill alone. Why do Republicans have to hide these things?
