RENO, NV — On Saturday, January 20, Assemblywoman Teresa Benitez-Thompson will speak at the Reno-area Women’s March addressing the crowd on the TrumpTax’s disastrous effects on working Nevada families. Assemblywoman Benitez-Thompson’s remarks will underline the message of the nationwide ‘Repeal the TrumpTax‘ Tour to demand the repeal of the recently passed Republican tax breaks for millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations at the expense of working families.
The Tax Policy Center found that more than half of American households – 100 million of them – will pay more in taxes, while the richest 0.1 percent will get a nearly $150,000 tax break under the TrumpTax. Millions will see a 10 percent increase in health insurance premiums and seniors will pay more from forced cuts to Medicare.
After Saturday’s event, the 100-day tour will continue hosting events around the country, featuring senators, congressional representatives, local elected officials, and people affected by the law. The tour will next travel to Los Angeles and San Diego.
