re: tax breaks for the rich (add your name)
The GOP's tax plan benefits the rich at the expense of working people -- add your name to tell congressional Republicans to create a tax plan that works for every American:
Trump, Pence, and congressional Republicans just released the outline for their tax plan. I can summarize it for you in five words: tax breaks for the rich.
They propose cutting taxes for billionaires, millionaires, and big corporations -- with nearly half of the tax cuts going to the top one percent, while corporations with offshore profits get a massive $550 billion tax cut.
And hardworking Americans will bear the cost.
This tax scheme is the latest Republican attack on working families, just like their plans to cut health care, Social Security, and education. It's the same kind of top-down economics Republicans have tried for decades, where the rich get richer at the expense of working families.
We've been down that road before, and it got us into the worst recession since the Great Depression -- we can't afford to go back.
We need real reform that will work for every American, not just those at the top. Add your name: tell Republicans it's time to scrap their tax-cuts-for-the-rich plan and start from scratch:
