Not One Penny Rally

In early November, Congressional Republicans released a bill that would give massive tax cuts to the rich and wealthy corporations. The cuts for the already-wealthy would come on the backs of seniors with fixed incomes and those who can least afford them. The last thing we need is for the tax code to be even more rigged in favor of millionaires, billionaires, and corporate insiders. Instead, we need to fight for a tax code that makes the economy work better for working families. Republicans' desires to cut taxes for corporations will undermine our commitment to public education, job training, Medicare, and Medicaid, and make it impossible to invest in the middle class. The NYT calls this "Paul Ryan's 2017 Tax Increase on Middle-Class Families."
Our Congressman, Duncan Hunter is favor of this bill which includes the elimination of state and local tax (SALT) deuctions, which affect 1 in 3 Californians for an annual average deduction of $5,507. He says, "Why punish the rest of the nation when California is stupid?" This bill also cuts coverage for CA wildfires, but not hurricanes. Our representative does not represent us. Bring your signs and voices and let's show him how we feel!
