****URGENT HOUSE ACTION 3/28/2017****

HOUSE RESOLUTION 186 (TRUMP'S TAX RETURNS) - MARKUP HAPPENS AT 4PM TODAY!

Today at 4 p.m., the House Ways and Means Committee will hold a markup on H.Res. 186, a Resolution of Inquiry directing the Secretary of the Treasury to provide the House of Representatives with Trump’s tax returns, along with other financial dealings.

This call should only be made to your member of the House of Representatives. You might notice that we're calling this "H.Res. 186." Unlike a typical bill that becomes a law, an H.Res. instructs the House to do something—in this case, use its authority to direct Treasury Secretary Mnuchin to provide the House with President Trump's taxes. An H.Res won’t go on to the Senate after the House votes.

SCRIPT:

I am a constituent from zip code ________ and I am calling to urge Representative ___________ to cosponsor House Resolution 186 which calls for the release of ten years of President Trump's tax returns along with other information on his financial dealings.

This is a very important issue for our country and its future. By not releasing his tax returns, Donald Trump is breaking a promise he made to the American people.  Donald Trump works for us, and only for us. He should not be allowed to enrich himself while sitting in the Oval Office. He needs to clear the air about any business dealings he may have had with Russia.

Here is my concern: we need transparency about Trump’s ongoing business relationships, particularly about his business dealings in Russia. I expect Representative ___________ to do three things to show that s/he is in on my side:

1. Cosponsor H.Res. 186.

2. Commit to publicly speak out for the full and complete release of President Trump’s tax returns.

3. Support any Congressional investigation that leads to the release of President Trump’s tax returns. 

Please take down my information so Representative _______ can let me know if s/he will commit to these three requests.

Thank you.
