Stop the donor payback, I mean Republican tax plan

On Thursday, the Senate is expected to vote on the Republican tax plan that provides tax breaks for high-income households and corporations including so-called “pass-through” entities such as hedge funds and private equity firms. The bill could also result in automatic cuts to Medicare, starting as soon as 2018.

Instead of tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations―paid for by cutting critical services for working families―call your Senators and tell them to reject Donald Trump and Republican leaders’ tax plan.

Here’s a suggested call script:
Call: 888-516-5820

My name is _______. I live in TOWN, STATE and I’m a constituent of the Senator's.

I want Senator [NAME] to OPPOSE the Senate tax plan that delivers huge tax cuts to America’s wealthiest families and corporations. Instead of tax breaks for hedge funds and private equity firms ―paid for with cuts to Medicare and Medicaid―we need a tax plan that invests in our country’s future. 

This is how we stopped Trumpcare. Millions of Americans stood up and made our voices heard. Let’s stand together now to stop this disastrous tax plan that benefits the rich and powerful at the expense of working families.
