FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wednesday, January 31, 2018
CHICAGO — On Friday, February 2, at 9:45 AM CT, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky and Congressman Danny Davis will join Tax March Executive Director Nicole Gill, Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality Co-Director Indi Dutta-Gupta, and Women’s March Head of Field Operations & Strategy Mrinalini Chakraborty for a town hall on the TrumpTax’s disastrous effects on Illinois working families. The town hall is the latest event on a nationwide tour to shine a light on Republican tax breaks for millionaires, billionaires and wealthy corporations at the expense of working families.
The Tax Policy Center found that 86 million middle income families across America will pay more in taxes, while the richest 0.1 percent will get a nearly $150,000 tax break with the TrumpTax. Millions will see a 10 percent increase in health insurance premiums and our commitment to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will be undermined.
After Thursday’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 Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana.
Friday’s event is free and open to the public.
