We can stop the #TrumpTaxScam. But the only way we can stop tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires at the expense of the most vulnerable Americans (immigrants, students, the elderly, the poor) is if we make a lot of noise.
By now, you know that Senate Republicans snuck a repeal of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate into the #TrumpTaxScam. A new analysis from the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation (think the Congressional Budget Office on tax matters) shows that the bill would mean everyone making less than $75,000 a year would, on average, see a tax INCREASEwhile corporations get permanent tax cuts.
National, loud, sustained constituent pressure will be the death knell of this bill. Here are the two things we need to do to stop the #TrumpTaxScam-skinny-repeal mess of a bill rolling through Congress:
Call fellow progressives in key #TrumpTaxScam target states and patch them through to their Senators. We’re bringing back a super effective peer-to-peer calling tool from the TrumpCare fight so you can take action to stop this bill by reaching out to progressive constituents in Alaska, Arizona, and West Virginia. Get started now.
Your voice will be the difference in this fight. We have to make a ton of noise between now and when the Senate comes back in session on November 27. They could pass this bill just a few days later.
It’s going to take a lot of work, a lot of organizing to beat back this bill. But it’s so, so, so worth it to stop massive tax cuts for the wealthy, to save healthcare for 13 million people, and to ruin Trump and McConnell’s agenda.
