TAX SCAM WEEK OF ACTION - CONTACT CONGRESS

Issue

We need to contact Congress about 45's tax plan! Ask your representative and two senators whether they'll stand with working families or for 45's tax scam. You can write a letter, tweet, call, or take these questions to a townhall.

I don’t believe that cutting taxes for the rich will do anything for the economy, except to make the rich richer. I’ve paid taxes my whole life and think that you, as my Representative, should be prioritizing me and my family, not the wealthy. Will you commit to me, your constituent, that you will oppose any new tax cuts for the rich?

Few corporations actually pay their fair share in taxes. Many pay none at all. It’s unfair that many rich corporations are paying less in taxes than people like me. Even 45 is bragging about how corporate profits have never been higher. If that’s true, then why do they need a huge tax cut? Will you commit to me, your constituent, that you will oppose any tax plan that cuts taxes for corporations or leaves corporate tax loopholes in place?

I am worried that 45's tax plan, and the one I have seen from House Speaker Paul Ryan, would increase the deficit by trillions of dollars. And since Republicans in the Senate want to pass the bill through reconciliation, they’ll have to offset these huge tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations with cuts to Medicare and Medicaid in order to make them permanent. Will you commit to me, your constituent, that you will oppose any tax plan that jeopardizes Medicare and Medicaid to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations? 

Without his tax returns, the American people have no way of knowing how much tax cuts will benefit 45 and his businesses. The taxpayers deserve to know if our hard-earned money is going to the President’s personal gain. Will you oppose any tax cuts until President 45 release his tax returns so that the American people can fully understand how it will personally benefit him and his businesses?
