Act Now: We must stop this harmful tax bill

December 14, 2017

We need your help! Early next week, Congress will vote on a tax bill that will irreparably harm the lives of millions of hardworking Americans. 

Call (800-826-3688) or email your representative and senators. Tell them to vote NO on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act would raise taxes on 10 million low- to moderate-income households over the next decade. The bill would also increase the national debt by $1 trillion, leading to cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Medicaid.

We must stop this harmful bill! Tax reform should help, not hurt, people who work hard but still struggle to put food on the table.  

Call (800-826-3688) or email your representative and senators. Tell them to vote NO on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. 

 

We must stop this harmful bill!
