To pay for massive tax credits for the richest one percent, they plan to make deep cuts to critical public services our communities depend on, including Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and education.
The Republican senator leading this giant tax giveaway is Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, who is chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. He’s requesting input from Wall Street, corporate lobbyists, and other “experts” on how best to reform the tax system. But Sen. Hatch really needs to hear from key stakeholders like you! We only have until July 17 to respond.
Sign our petition to tell Sen. Orrin Hatch and Congress: No more tax cuts for the wealthy!
Tax loopholes for the wealthy elite already exist, and the GOP’s new plan would only make things worse. If economic inequality is to become a thing of the past, we need to fight back against this uneven system and protect, not cut, services that lift up working families.
We need real tax reform to make sure the wealthy and big corporations pay their fair share – a lot more than they pay now. Our government should then invest those tax dollars in our country’s future – in public roads and transit systems; quality and affordable early childhood education; public schools and higher education; researching new medical cures; and ensuring a secure retirement for all of us by strengthening Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
Send a message to Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, and tell him we demand an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthy few. That means the richest Americans need to pay their fair share in taxes!
Let’s drown out the corporate lobbyists and make sure Sen. Hatch hears our collective demand for a fair economy. We only have until Monday to make our voices heard. Please sign our petition now.
