Tell Congress to repeal the #GOPTaxScam for the rich now
As American citizens we pay our fair share in taxes to invest in our country’s future. But do you know who’s not paying their fair share? The richest 1%, Wall Street CEOs, and big corporations.
The #GOPTaxScam that passed in December 2017 doled out $1.5 trillion in tax breaks -- mostly to the richest 1% and wealthy corporations, and working families have been left to pick up the tab.
FACTS ABOUT THE GOP TAX SCAM:
- 83% of the tax cuts will go to the richest 1% by 2027.
- Raises taxes on 92 million middle-class families by 2027.
- Increases the deficit by at least $1.5 trillion, which will jeopardize Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, education, and other critical services.

Now that this terrible bill has blown a huge hole in the deficit, Trump and Republicans in Congress are already looking to force deep cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and education to pay for their giveaway to the rich.
Furthermore, the Treasury Department has announced massive borrowing to cover the cost of this tax scam, the money that has been returned to the U.S. through repatriation has not lived up to expectations, and now middle class families are starting to see their tax returns are actually much smaller - and many even owe money!
In order to invest in critical services that protect working families and older Americans, we must repeal the Trump-Republican tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations. We should replace it with targeted tax cuts for middle class families instead.
Demand that Congress repeal the #GOPTaxScam for the rich and corporations and make them pay their fair share in taxes. When they do, we’ll be able to protect critical services and invest in our families, communities and our country’s future.
The Koch brothers -- the second wealthiest family in the country worth approximately $96 billion -- are estimated to receive $1 billion a year in tax breaks from the #GOPTaxScam.
It’s time to end tax breaks for the Koch brothers, wealthy CEOs, and big corporations that shift profits offshore and outsource jobs. It’s time to end tax breaks for Big Pharma and greedy health insurance corporations. It’s time to close loopholes that benefit the richest 1% and Wall Street.
Join us and demand that Congress repeal the #GOPTaxScam for the rich and corporations -- and make them pay their fair share in taxes.
When we do, we’ll be able to rebuild and renew our nation’s critical infrastructure -- roads, bridges, and water systems. We’ll be able to invest in our future by fully funding our schools -- pre-K through college. We’ll be able to protect our environment and move towards a renewable energy future, and much more!
Together, let’s demand that our elected leaders put working families, children, and older Americans before wealthy campaign contributors and Wall Street.
