CAMBRIDGE, MA — On Thursday, February 1, at 10:45 AM ET, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Congresswoman Katherine Clark (D-MA) will join Tax March Executive Director Nicole Gill and Center for American Progress Senior Fellow Seth Hanlon for a town hall on the TrumpTax’s disastrous effects on Massachusetts 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 seniors will pay more from forced cuts to Medicare.
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 West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio.
Tuesday’s event is free and open to the public.
