Tax bill called ‘unacceptable,’ some provisions ‘unconscionable’

WASHINGTON — The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 "is unacceptable" as currently written and it "contains many fundamental structural flaws that must be corrected," stated the chairmen of three committees of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

In a letter Nov. 9 to U.S. House members, the three bishops called for amendments to the current draft of the tax reform bill "for the sake of families" and "for those struggling on the peripheries of society who have a claim on our national conscience."
