|Corporate lobbyists are pushing the White House and Republican leaders in Congress to pass a massive tax break for billionaires and giant corporations disguised as “tax reform.” And they want to pay for it by gutting Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and public education. Tell Congress to reject this greedy budget plan.
We can’t let our guard down for even a moment. Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell want to continue rigging the system to let the ultra-wealthy grow richer at our expense.
At the behest of corporate lobbyists and elite campaign donors, they’re planning to offer a huge tax break to CEOs and profitable corporations by slashing $4 to $6 trillion from Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and other services that working people, children and seniors depend on to lead a good life.
Only widespread outrage and action from people like you can stop this corporate giveaway in its tracks, just like we were able to do with so-called healthcare “reform.”
Stand with Jobs With Justice and tell Congress to reject the 1%’s plans to cut critical programs just to give themselves massive tax breaks.
The status quo works great for those who can afford to hide money in overseas bank accounts and cut American jobs. Multinational corporations already pay so much less than their fair share while they eliminate job after job and squeeze those who remain. Telecom giant AT&T paid an effective tax rate of only eight percent from 2008 to 2015, all while earning record profits and cutting nearly 80,000 U.S. jobs.
Will you take action right now? Tell members of Congress that any tax plan must require the rich and big corporations to pay their fair share of taxes.
Imagine if the 1% paid their fair share, we could actually invest in our country’s future: rebuilding roads and bridges, educating our children, expanding health care to all, ensuring a secure retirement for seniors, and much more.
But politicians like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan want to take health care away from millions of Americans. They’re willing to put our nation’s aging infrastructure at risk. And they’re OK with slashing support for public schools and forcing millions into more debt just to access higher education. All to give massive tax breaks to billionaires and profitable corporations.
We cannot let them get one penny in tax cuts. If enough of us join together, we can stop this outrageous corporate plan. Sign our petition today!
