Take Action to Tax the Rich
As we receive news of a Biden presidency and a progressive wave in Rhode Island, Governor Raimondo and the statehouse leadership have continued to say that “everything is on the table” for Rhode Island budget cuts. Governor Raimondo and Department of Administration Director Brett Smiley have even cut funding to cities and towns by 50%.
Can you write an email to your state reps, Raimondo, and Smiley demanding that they stop cuts to social services, and commit to taxing the rich?
We need to make our message clear: the cost of a pandemic cannot fall on the most vulnerable Rhode Islanders. Instead, we need to tax those who can afford it, and make sure that everyone has what they need to thrive.
