Why The Proposed Tax Code Overhaul is Scary for Most Americans

The Only Clear Policy of the Proposed Tax Overhaul is Big Tax Breaks for the Wealthiest

Yesterday, the House of Representatives took the first step towards the most sweeping tax overhaul in decades—and Republicans haven't made clear how it will ultimately affect the majority of Americans.

We need you to get back on the phones to your Senators, today and next week.

Taxes are complicated. While you shouldn't feel badly for being confused, you can make no mistake that legislators count on the confusion to act with less consequence.

The one certainty is that the wealthiest Americans will receive a proportionally MUCH larger increase in their after-tax income.

80% of the proposed tax cuts go to the 1%.

We'll continue to send details on the tax code in bite-sized chunks, particularly how it will put money in the pockets of big business; for now, we need to get back on the phones the same way we did with healthcare.

Call. Every. Day. Starting NOW.

What you can do

1. CALL YOUR SENATORS 202-224-3121 using this toolkit to see how much of the tax break is going to the wealthiest 1% in your state and using the script below.

USE THIS SCRIPT (feel free to ad-lib, of course)

I want to tell the Senator that I urge them to vote against the current proposed tax overhaul because of the disproportionate break it provides to the wealthiest Americans. This vague proposal privileges the wealthy without making clear at all how the middle class will be affected.
