The Trump Tax Scam, unsurprisingly is a massive giveaway to the wealthy and corporations, paid for by raising taxes on some middle class families and forcing deep cuts down the line to critical programs like Medicare and Medicaid. They want to eliminate taxes that only affect the wealthiest individuals and let corporations pay even less than they already do. The majority of the tax benefits from the Republicans’ plan will go to the top 1%, which will exacerbate our country’s massive racial wealth gap.
The fight in Congress over the Trump Tax Scam is happening right now. Republicans released the text of their bill on November 2, and want to have it ready for Trump to sign by Thanksgiving. Their plan is to use the same secretive, partisan process they tried (and failed) to use for health care, using “reconciliation” to pass the Trump Tax Scam through the Senate with only 51 votes .
The first step is to pass a bill through the House, which is why it’s critical that they’re met with massive constituent opposition right now. The more pressure we put on them before they build momentum, the better a chance we have of stopping the Trump Tax Scam before it ever gets off the ground.
Also don’t just tweet. Call your Republican MOC or use Resistbot to contact your MoC and tell them: no tax cuts for the wealthy at the expense of everyone else. NO to the Trump Tax Scam.
