Petition to Democratic elected officials and candidates:
"Commit to fully repealing the immoral, unjust and job-killing Trump Tax Scam in the next Congress with no exceptions, and replace it with a plan that finally makes multinational corporations, Wall Street and the ultra-wealthy pay their fair share."

It’s a new year and a good time for Democrats and Democratic candidates to make a new resolution: Commit to wiping away the job-killing stain on America that is the Trump Tax Scam.
The further 2018 progresses, the more attention there will be on the upcoming midterm elections. With corporate money flowing and rich donors whispering in their ears, some Democrats will be tempted to waffle on the Trump Tax Scam instead of offering a vibrant and distinct alternative.
Our job now is to make it clear just how toxic Trump and his Tax Scam truly are – and demand that every Democratic official and candidate commit to repeal and replace the Trump Tax Scam.
It will start with a few “exceptions.” Then, corporate Democrats will propose preserving huge chunks of this outrageous bill in a bid to appease donors. Before long, your average voter will be unable to distinguish between the party of Trump tax handouts for billionaires and the muddled opposition.
There is no good reason for Democrats to preserve any part of this Tax Scam. It will kill jobs and lower wages by exacerbating income inequality and encouraging growth on Wall Street instead of Main Street.1 On top of that, it is:
Democrats will fail if they become the party of tweaking the Trump Tax Scam. They must draw a clear dividing line by promising to repeal and replace the Trump Tax Scam in its entirety in the next Congress.
The main beneficiaries of the Trump Tax Scam are Donald Trump himself and the super wealthy donors who fund Republican political campaigns. The bad news for Republicans is that the American people know a scam when they see one. Americans will not forget this cruel robbery of the poor and the middle class to give massive tax breaks to big corporations and Republican donors. But it’s up to us to make sure Democrats seize the opportunity.
