Call Congress Today

Late last week Senate Republicans passed a tax reform bill designed to cater to corporations and only the wealthiest members of society. As the bill heads to the House of Representatives, we need you. Contact your representative today. Call 1-844-899-9913 and tell Congress to stand with working families.

The Republican tax plan will kill jobs. It reduces the tax rate on offshore profits to zero, which gives corporations even more incentive to send jobs overseas. Our leaders should be focused on creating good jobs here at home, not giving employers reason to take them elsewhere.

The plan also undermines public education by eliminating key funding for schools and even taking away tax deductions for teachers who buy classroom supplies out of their own pockets.  It cuts funding for critical services like police and fire departments. And, as if that's not enough, GOP lawmakers have even decided to use this bill as a means to continue attacking working people's health care.

Call your representative today and tell them to oppose this and any bill that asks working people to pay for wasteful tax giveaways for corporations.
