Today’s Action: Stop the Trump Tax Scam – The House Votes This Week!
Republicans got an unwelcome reality check last week when the Senate parliamentarian ruled that the House’s version of the Trump Tax Scam is so fiscally irresponsible, that the Senate would not be able to pass it without Democratic votes — effectively killing it.
But Senate Republicans are not giving up their attempt to enrich the already wealthy at the expense of everyone else. Mitch McConnell and his minions have produced a plan that’s just as damaging to working families and middle-class America while catering to corporations and millionaires.
The House votes this week, and the Senate will follow soon after — Congress needs to hear your voices to Stop this Scam.
Trump says Democrats will love the Senate’s plan, but don’t be fooled:
- State and Local Tax (SALT) deductions are gone, meaning 44 million middle-class Americans in blue states will see a tax increase;
- The Estate Tax is reduced, meaning more wealth concentrated in the hands of those who already have it;
- Big corporations still win big: to mask the devastating effects of slashing taxes for corporations, Republicans have delayed it until 2019 — but it remains intact.
And who’s paying for these handouts to the super wealthy? Working families who will pay more for healthcare, higher education, and housing.
With the House vote this week, it is vital that your representatives hear from you today.
Call your Representatives today at 202.225.3121 and demand they vote “no” on the Trump Tax Scam. Not sure how to specifically express your outrage? Indivisible has scripts for both Democrats and Republicans to help you.
Stop. This. Scam.
PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling telling Congress to end Trump’s militarization of the police, and add your name to the Americans demanding answers on the Trump Tower-Russia meeting and telling Congress to make Jared Kushner testify publicly!
