Event will feature 30-ft tall inflatable Tax March Chicken
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, February 15, 2018
DENVER, CO — On Saturday, February 17, at 11AM , at Lincoln Park, Bell Policy President Scott Wasserman, MomsRising’s Erin Bennett Leighton and small business owner Jeff Rogoff 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 detail the devastating effects the TrumpTax will have on Colorado families and call on congressional Republicans to repeal their recently passed tax law.
The event will feature the 30-ft inflatable Tax March Chicken to call out Congressional Republicans for being too chicken to oppose President Trump’s tax cuts for the top one percent.
The Tax Policy Center found that 92 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 Saturday’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 Albuquerque, Phoenix, and Tucson.
