Flood the Phones: Don’t Raise Taxes on Working Families

Call now to stop the Tax Bill that would raise taxes on millions of working class families in order to fund big tax breaks for the rich. The bill could be up for a vote as early as this evening or later this week.

Senator Ron Johnson could be a deciding vote in whether this horrible tax rewrite for working families passes or fails.

***Call Senator Ron Johnson’s office at (202) 224-5323 and urge him to vote no on the tax bill***

The Senate is set to vote on this deeply unpopular tax scheme that is unfair to working people. For example, the plan would raise taxes for families making $10,000 to $75,000 and give a tax break for private jet owners.

This far-reaching tax bill that has been rushed to a vote with no hearings, could dramatically change our American way of life and stick the next generation with the bill. Future Americans will pay the price for this backwards tax scam by ballooning the deficit by $1 trillion.

Despite the rhetoric, we know tax cuts for the rich do not create jobs, raise wages or grow our economy. History has proven that trickle-down economics doesn’t work. Evidence shows that when corporations get lower tax rates, the savings do not get passed on to workers in terms of higher wages, but instead go to increasing CEO pay.

The Joint Committee on Taxation and the Congressional Budget Office estimates that by 2027, people making $40,000 to $50,000 would pay a combined total of $5.3 billion MORE in taxes, while people earning $1 million or more would get a combined $5.8 billion cut!

Call Senator Johnson’s office at 202-224-5323 today.

Trickle down tax schemes for the rich do not create a strong America. Our economy is strongest when workers have living wages, strong unions and money in our pocket to put back into the local economy.

In Solidarity,

Phil Neuenfeldt, President

Stephanie Bloomingdale, Secretary-Treasurer
