#TheResistance Tweetsheets will be laser focused on #TaxReform until the vote. See the info below.
With the house passing the budget resolution, #TheResistance has entered the sprint: the 6-week window when GOP wants to fleece you to help the rich
Headlines are saying, inaccurately, that this budget resolution allows a $1.5 trillion tax cut. No no no no.
The budget resolution allows for $1.5 trillion increase in deficit—but also calls for $5 TRILLION in cuts. So, $6.5T for tax cuts for rich. & that’s actually less than the $7.8 trillion price tag Trump’s proposed mega tax giveaway to rich & corporations
Rubber meets road next Wed, Nov 1, when GOP plans to unveil their actual tax bill. Immediate reaction = critical.
Floods of phone calls, protests at Congressional offices, volcanic social media (that us) response—all will be necessary to slow momentum out of gate.
Tax bill goes thru House Ways & Means Cmte week of Nov 6. Possible full House vote week of Nov 13th. Vast pressure needed to force delay.
Just as with health care bill in the House, if they don’t have the votes, they’ll delay the vote. They won’t simply give up. Neither will we
The longer their bill is in the public eye, the less popular it will become. Americans don’t want to further rig economy against middle class
If GOP stays on track with maximally aggressive schedule, Senate Finance Committee could review & vote on bill week of Nov 13, before Thxgvg
Worst case scenario, full Senate votes on their bill right after Thanksgiving, week of Nov 27. But not if the outraged public does its job.
Not that GOP will give up if they can’t pass bill by Dec 13. But road narrows.
So that’s our goal: push it all past that date.
