Stop The Trump Tax Scam

Members of the House and Senate are currently meeting in “conference committee” to resolve the differences between their bills. That means that this is our very last chance to defeat the Trump Tax Scam—and we can. Some Republicans are already publicly saying that they might change their vote.

The Trump Tax Scam is like a “greatest hits” album of unpopular Republican policies. It prioritizes giveaways to the wealthy and corporations over middle-class families; takes away people’s health care; and forces deep cuts to Medicare and Medicaid down the line.

In addition to these high-profile changes to our nation’s health care system, the Tax Scam would have a huge impact on our environment. Republicans would open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil and gas drilling for the first time so that they can give oil and gas companies billions of dollars in tax cuts.

We need massive constituent pressure on Republicans to tell them to reject the Trump Tax Scam.

 

Script:

Hello! My name is _________ and I’m calling from zip code __________. I’m calling to let Senator/Representative _________ know that I strongly oppose the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This tax bill is a scam that will give massive cuts to the wealthy, paid for by leaving tens of thousands of people in North Carolina uninsured, raising premiums, and raising taxes on middle-class families. Every single provision intended to help the middle-class expires, but the corporate tax cuts are forever. Even worse, the CBO estimates that health insurance premiums will increase 10% more per year than they would without this bill and we know 13 million more people will be uninsured! 

(If you speak to a staffer) - Please take down my contact information so you can let me know what the Senator/Representative decides to do. Thank you.
