“WASHINGTON, D.C. - This weekend, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will join 'Not One Penny' and MoveOn.org Civic Action on the four-stop ‘Protecting Working Families Tour’ to oppose the harmful Republican plan to give billions in tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations.”
Repeal the TrumpTax Because Working Americans Deserve Better
Despite overwhelming objections from the public, Congress passed the GOP’s tax scam bill late last year, increasing taxes for 92 million middle-class families, raising health care premiums, and threatening life-saving programs – all to give massive tax breaks to the rich. Working people, whether white, black, or brown, deserve better. As Republicans consider even further tax breaks for the rich, we must join together to fight back!
92,000,000 The number of middle-class families that received a tax increase under the Republican tax plan.
$148,260 The average tax cut the top 0.1 percent get under the new tax law.
84% The percentage of Americans who favor raising taxes on the mega rich.
67% The percentage of Americans who believe corporations pay too little in taxes.
What the Press Is Saying
“The Republican tax bill could cut many people like me off from government services. It automatically triggers $400 billion in cuts to Medicare, and Mick Mulvaney, the head of the White House Office of Management and Budget, will have sole responsibility for deciding what programs to slash. Mulvaney opposes the Medicare disability program. If this tax bill passes, will I be able to get the ventilator I need to stay alive?”
