December 20, 2017 The Call – #TrumpTaxScam #GOPTaxScam Republicans in the House and Senate passed a historically unpopular tax bill on Tuesday (although the House made technical errors and will re-vote again Wednesday morning to pass it). Corporations and the very wealthy reap the benefits of the bill, which will make wealth inequality much worse. The tax bill is also is a key part of the stealth repeal of the ACA, which Republicans were unable to achieve directly. Republicans have passed an atrocious bill and it is important that we let them know they have made a terrible mistake, which we will remember and act upon when they run for any election. It is also an important best practice to thank your Democratic members of Congress, all of whom voted against the tax bill, and the 12 House Republicans who defected. Your Action Call your 3 members of Congress and thank those who voted against the tax bill. (Note: Sen John McCain was not there to vote) For members of Congress who helped pass the bill, politely but firmly tell them you are unhappy with their vote and that it will impact how you vote in the future.
