Help End the Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich

Call Your Representative TODAY!

Things are moving fast. We're coming off the heels of a great victory in the U.S. Senate where just last week a majority voted to end the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2%. But the work is far from over. As early as today the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on the same issue. Just like in the Senate, the choice we face is a clear one:

Republicans will propose that everyone get a tax cut -- including a $150,000 tax break, on average, for people who earn more than $1 million a year. Their bill also will raise taxes on 25 million mostly middle- to lower-income families.

Democrats will propose that everyone get a tax cut -- but that it end on income above $250,000 a year -- the richest 2%.

It is simply unacceptable that members of Congress would vote to protect the richest 2% while raising taxes on 25 million mostly middle- and lower-income families.

Please take a minute to call your U.S. Representative using our toll free line: (888) 744-9958 and demand that he or she vote to end the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2 percent.

This is about right and wrong. If some members of Congress would rather give tax breaks to millionares and billionares instead of giving them to 25 million American families, they need to hear from you. They need to hear that you support middle-class tax cuts and are tired of seeing the richest 2% get tax cuts they don't need and we can't afford.

Call (888) 744-9958 and connect with your U.S. Representative right now. Let them know how you feel about tax cuts for the richest 2%.

We've got a lot of momentum going into this vote, and we can't waste it. Let's hit the phones.

Thanks!
