GOP tax plan (signatures needed)

Kamala Harris

Fresno County, this is urgent: Senate Republicans are adding a provision to their tax bill that would cause an estimated 13 million more Americans to be uninsured and raise premiums for millions of others.

And the House just passed their version of this bill, which means it’s now or never if we’re going to save our health care.

Sign our petition opposing the GOP tax plan that cuts taxes on the wealthy and causes 13 million people to be uninsured.

SIGN THE PETITION

Here’s the truth: Congress should be doing what’s best for the people, not just those at the very top. This tax “plan” is a cruel catastrophe that targets working families, disaster victims, homeowners, students, lower-income Americans, and small business owners.

And according to the Congressional Budget Office, the Trump tax plan that’s been introduced in the House — and passed this week — increases the deficit by $1.7 trillion over the next ten years.

By every measure, this plan is immoral and just bad public policy. Any elected official who votes for people to lose their health care to pay for tax cuts for the top 1% needs to lose their job in 2018.

We need to know if you’re standing with Kamala and our team who are working hard to defeat this bill. Add your name now:

Sign our petition if you agree: the Republican tax plan is bad for working people and must be defeated in the Senate.

Thanks for all you do.

—Team Kamala

Can you sign my petition on net neutrality?

Kamala Harris

Earlier today we learned that the FCC is moving forward to repeal net neutrality rules that protect our free and open internet. As I said in my letter to the FCC just a few months ago: this proposal is a grave threat to the idea that the internet should be free and accessible for all. It’s a danger to our economy and free speech rights and we must defeat it.

A final vote is planned next month — we have to mobilize right now:

Add your name if you agree that we need to protect and expand the internet so that everyone — regardless of how much money they make or where they live — can access the internet >>

SIGN THE PETITION

More than 700,000 Californians — and more than 8 million Americans — have already submitted comments in response to the FCC’s misguided proposal, including myself. Our message has been clear: broadband providers must not be allowed to tilt the playing field by blocking or throttling their competitors, prioritizing their offerings, or otherwise unreasonably interfering with lawful content.

The basic principle of net neutrality is that access to all websites and web services should be treated equally — that anyone can start their own website and make it accessible to anyone with internet access.

What the FCC wants to do is empower broadband service providers — the gatekeepers of the internet — to potentially distort the online marketplace and set up a pay-for-play system.

This would be a terrible mistake that would hurt the most vulnerable and voiceless among us. It will imperil our economy while reducing innovation, entrepreneurship, and creativity.

I have confidence that if enough of us come together in the next several weeks, we can make our voices heard and save the internet. That’s why I’m asking you to add your name to my petition today:

Sign on if you agree: the free and open internet is a cornerstone of our society and must be protected at all costs. Urge the members of the FCC to vote down these new rules and save the internet >>

Fifty years ago, California researchers invented the internet — and today, engineers, entrepreneurs, and artists continue to invent the future both in my state and around the country.

Let’s not roll back our progress. Help us fight back today and save the free and open internet.

Thanks for all you do.

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California
