Make Republicans pay for their tax scam

Join us.

Republicans in Congress just passed their historically unpopular tax plan — disastrous, sweeping legislation that provides a massive giveaway to the wealthy at the expense of everyone else.

We can make Republicans pay for this vote next November — but only if we come together.

Donald Trump and the Republican Party are calling this a major win for their agenda — but the only true winners are the ultra-wealthy and large corporations.

Here’s what the GOP tax scam does:

  • Undermines health care coverage by repealing the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act. This will cause premiums to rise by 10% for the average person and 13 million people will go without coverage.
  • Provides enormous tax breaks to the top 1% and corporations, significantly widening the gap between the rich and the poor.
  • Increases the deficit by $1.5 trillion by allowing the wealthy to pay less in taxes and forcing future generations to pick up the tab.

This legislation makes it very clear who Republicans are fighting for. Now it’s up to us to fight back.

Thank you for being a part of this,

Tom
