Letters: Republican tax plan if extremely irresponsible

Re “California House Republicans support narrow approval of budget, tax overhaul” (sacbee.com, Oct. 26): The Republican Congress is working on one of the most irresponsible and unjustified budget and tax plans ever. Republicans are planning another huge tax cut for wealthy people and corporations, justifying it on the false hope of trickle down economics. While you and I will pay higher taxes and have to pay off the loan this budget buster will necessitate, wealthy people will reap the rewards. To add insult to injury, all California Republican members of Congress voted to raise federal taxes on all Californians to pay for this stupidity.
