U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings could vote to give us all of us (98 percent) a tax cut, if he wishes. His party however is holding the cut ransom for the top 2 percent (the rich and the superrich). Cost: trillions of dollars over next 10 years. I appeal to him to vote for middle class (family earning under $250,000 or individuals earning less than $200,000) tax cut. Cost $200 billion over 10 years.
