Should the Senate pass their tax plan as constructed?

The numbers are in from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office on the Senate Republicans’ tax plan and they could cause problems with its passage. It will add an estimated $1.4 trillion to the deficit over the next 10 years. In addition, it projects that it will have a negative impact on poorer Americans. By 2019, people making $30,000 a year would be worse off and by 2027, people making $75,000 a year would be worse off. Also, an estimated 4 million people will no longer have healthcare by 2019, and that number rises to 13 million by 2027. The Senate hopes to have a floor vote on the tax plan by the end of the week. Given the negative numbers of the CBO score, a question does come to mind. Should the Senate pass their tax plan as currently constructed?

The Issue

Should the Senate pass their tax plan as it is currently constructed? Will this plan improve jobs and wages? Or, is this a horrible plan that will hurt the poorest among us?
