The screenshot is of a text message my tax attorney friend sent me. By “your former governor” he is referring to Bobby Jindal, who launched Louisiana into a budget crisis of historic proportions during a time when our main source of revenue and jobs - the oil industry - is laying off in droves.

Call your reps!

ETA: He adds “Ryan’s tax plan shrinks marginal rates, so people think they’re getting a tax cut. They’re not. Everyone’s deductions are going away.” I am really, really bad at understanding tax shit so I’m glad this friend of mine is reaching out about it.
