Guarantee that the Tax Bill benefits ordinary Americans Most !

This petition had 1,412 supporters

The current proposals for the Tax Bill significantly increase the national debt by over 1.5 Trillion dollars, which will be a obligation borne by taxpayers.  Most of the provisions of the Tax Bill are given to the wealthy and large corporations, with the hope that benefits will trickle down to ordinary Americans as increased jobs, salaries, and economic investment and growth.  However, this hope is not a guarantee.  If the American taxpayers are to be the risk takers, in this bill, then the Tax Bill needs to contain provisions to help guarantee this bill provides benefits to ordinary Americans.  This can be fixed with simple changes we are proposing in the bill. Specifically we are proposing that: (1) if a company or wealthy individual wants to take advantage of the lower tax rates offered, then 50% of the tax savings, must go to a the employees in the the lower 80% of the company payroll; and (2) an additional 30% of the tax savings must go to capital investments by purchasing products made entirely in the United States of America - otherwise they pay the existing 2016 tax rates.
