Ohio resident, Mrs. Sharlene Thornton, attended a tax event Saturday and she recently wrote a letter to President Trump on the effect his tax reform has had on her and her husband. Below is the letter:
From: Mrs. Sharlene Thornton
I would like to thank you for taking on the tremendous task of the presidency firstly. I would also like to thank you for the tax cuts. It has made a huge difference in my husbands biweekly paycheck. Because of the cuts, we are now receiving an additional $300 biweekly, that’s $600 monthly with a few months being $900. You see, my husband was a Stationary Engineer in a steel mill in the Youngstown-Warren area and lost his job to the Chinese steel. The company he worked for went bankrupt. He was out of work for 1 1/2 years. In that time I had to stop working because I’m legally blind and there is no public transportation where we live. We almost lost our home. We did have to surrender a vehicle. It was a devastating couple of years. He finally found a job and traveled 1 1/2 hours each way. He has done this for three years and has transferred a little closer now. We are very grateful and thankful for this extra money monthly. We appreciate all you are doing and want you to know that we are firm supporters of you. God Bless you and God Bless America.
