Tax reform did little to help the debt situation

In response to the Viewpoint column by Diane Dimond published in the Marietta Times on July 6:

While I agree that Congress throws a lot of good money out the window, Dimond must have conveniently forgotten the recent republican-passed “tax reform” that “reformed” over 95 percent of the refund money back into the pockets of the rich. A “reform” that did diddly squat for the rest of us and added – that’s added – $1.3 trillion (Yes, trillion with a T) to our debt. But not just our debt – our children will pay for this too – for decades.

Ms. Dimond should try to be more complete in her view of things.
