“Overbrook farmer Mike Fawl is an unlikely candidate to debate national tax policy with Republicans U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins and President Donald Trump or Democratic U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer and independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders.”
Not One Penny in Tax Cuts for Millionaires, Billionaires, and Wealthy Corporations
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.
