Fight back against biggest tax hike in U.S. history


12/4/17 

ALERT: The Trump Tax Plan is not yet law. There’s still a chance we can stop the biggest tax hike on the middle class in American history. This tax scam actually RAISES taxes by $4.5 TRILLION on everybody except the richest 1 percent, who is getting a massive tax cut. Worse, this tax plan unfairly targets and disproportionately impacts Californians. The Republican tax plan eliminates the deduction of state taxes, which will raise taxes on nearly every Californian. Simply put, it will adversely impact you and every person you know and hobble the California economy in order to give tax cuts to billionaires. 

You likely have heard that U.S. Senate Republicans narrowly approved their tax plan in the early morning hours on Saturday with no public hearings and huge giveaways to our nation’s wealthiest families. The House of Representatives still has to approve this version or a reconciled version of this bill for it to become law. We need to contact our Republican members of the House and urge them to vote against RAISING TAXES ON CALIFORNIANS. Tell them a Yes vote on the tax plan is a vote to raise taxes on nearly every single California resident. Tell them it’s irresponsible to mortgage our grandchildren’s future so the super-wealthy can deduct the cost of their private plane. Tell them it’s un-American to threaten the well-being of so many for the benefit of an already-privileged few.
