LOS ANGELES, CA — On Monday, January 22, at 2:30PM PT, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, national policy leader Ann O’Leary, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities expert Chye-Ching Huang, and Actress Sophia Bush will participate in a roundtable discussion on the TrumpTax’s disastrous effects on working California families. The town hall is the latest event on a nationwide tour to shine a light on Republican tax breaks for 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 Monday’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 San Diego, West Virginia, and Kentucky.
Monday’s event is free and open to the public. Attendees can register, here.
