Tax Reform

Your DGB for today is to bombard your Senators with messages to vote against the GOP’s tax reform bill.

We all have Horrible Senate Bill Fatigue, but we still need to get over this next hurdle. We killed like ten separate health care reform attempts and we can win this battle, too.

If you want to read all the terrifying details of the bill, do so here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/11/26/senate-gop-tax-bill-hurts-the-poor-more-than-originally-thought-cbo-finds/?utm_term=.b10e09602c2c. It’s basically a reverse Robin Hood with a poorly-hidden health care repeal bonus. The nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation and Congressional Budget Office both agree the bill greatly harms poor Americans and inflates the deficit. Those with “economic anxiety” may want to take notice.

You’ll use Resistbot, a billboard, Owl Post, streaking, street art, email, or anything else you can think of to get your point across this weekend: stop trying to make the rich richer on the backs of the poor.
