Donald Trump and Republicans in Washington are calling their tax bill a Christmas gift to the middle-class.
The reality is that the bill will hand trillions of dollars in tax cuts to the richest 1% and wealthy corporations while triggering $25 billion in automatic cuts to Medicare next year, knocking 13 million people off their health care, and increasing taxes on millions of middle-class families.
Call your U.S. Representative and Senator Capito today and demand they reject a tax plan that hands trillions of dollars in tax breaks to the rich and powerful on the backs of working families, older Americans, and people with disabilities.
Senator Capito: 202-224-6472
Toll-Free Line to the House of Representatives: 877-795-7862
An article in the New York Times over the weekend laid out “The Winners and Losers in the Tax Bill.” It’s no surprise that President Trump and members of his family are among the winners who stand to benefit, along with big corporations and multi-millionaires, while individual taxpayers, the elderly, and low-income families will pay more in taxes and face losing their health care and access to other vital services.
We can’t let members of Congress pass their terrible tax scam while they lie to the American people about the real-life consequences of this bill.
Suggested Call Script:
Please call today! Together, we’re demanding a tax system and a health care system that works for everyone, not just the wealthy few.
Yours for Action,

When members of Congress get used to raising money from just a few people, they give those people enormous power. Click here to read “How Citizens United Changed Politics and Shaped the Tax Bill.”
