FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Friday, January 5, 2018
KANSAS CITY, MO — On Tuesday, January 9, at 10AM CT, at the City Hall of Kansas City, Let America Vote President and former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander, Kansas City Councilman Quinton Lucas, and Rabbi Doug Alpert of Congregation Kol Ami will join Not One Penny for a stop on 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.
Speakers at the press conference will answer questions about the devastating effects of the TrumpTax and call on congressional Republicans to repeal their recently passed nationwide tax law. The recently passed nationwide tax law is modeled after the Kansas law that devastated Kansas’ economy and robbed funding from Kansas schools.
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 with the TrumpTax. Millions will see a 10 percent increase in health insurance premiums and seniors will pay more from forced cuts to Medicare.
After Tuesday’s event, the 100-day tour will hold events around the country, featuring senators, congressional representatives, local elected officials, and people affected by the law. The tour will next travel to St. Louis, Las Vegas, and Reno before continuing to more than 30 cities from coast to coast.
