Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman represents New Jersey's 12th district. She says a majority of people in the country, and her constituents, will see a tax increase under the new law. The Congresswoman points out that estate tax eliminations will benefit the richest Americans, including President Trump.
New Jersey and New York are among the highest-taxed states in the country, which is why many Republicans from both voted "no" on the bill. The congresswoman says they are on the right side of history because the bill will hurt middle-class families in their states.
Watson Coleman had a message for constituents: stay awake, stay alert, stay mobilized. The 2018 midterm elections, she says, will be an opportunity for voters across the country who want to change the tax bill to be heard.
