COMMEMORATE ELECTION DAY AND STOP THE TRUMP TAX SCAM
The GOP have coddled and indulged Trump’s autocratic antics for a chance to get their dream tax plan passed. A tax plan that benefits the wealthy and takes from so many. The Trump Tax Scam.
Behind the smoke and mirrors, behind the talk of simplicity, lies a tax plan that creates a $1.5 TRILLION deficit. GOP claims that these types of tax cuts spur the economy and that the deficit won’t grow are baseless.
Creating a $1.5 TRILLON deficit is the first step in a two part plan. The second part of the plan is outlined in the GOP budget which calls for CUTS to . . .
–Tax credits for working families
And on top of all these cuts, Trump is demanding that ACA repeal be included in the tax bill – and the GOP are researching how to add it.
Today is Election Day – and today we have a chance to take down the GOP crown jewel legislative item: tax reform. Our voices may not have been heard last year . . .
Make sure we are heard now!
**ACTION 1: Call both Senators and Congressman Walden**
(leaving a message counts too!)
SAMPLE SCRIPT for our Senators:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon, [zip code]. I am outraged by Trump’s Tax Plan. It will grow the deficit so much that all of our social programs will be cut. I rely on [share a personal story]. Thank you for standing up against this tax plan. Please use all procedural tools to stop it. You saved the ACA. We are counting on you to save our social safety net again! Thank you.”
SAMPLE SCRIPT for Walden:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon, [zip code]. I am outraged by Trump’s Tax Plan. It will grow the deficit so much that all of our social programs will be cut. I rely on [share a personal story]. Put country before party and do all you can to stop this tax plan. Thank you.”
**ACTION 2: Reflect and build upon our experiences of the last year**
Today is Election Day which means it is one year since our country was turned upside down. While the past year has been tough, it has also been inspiring. Please know that we at ORD2 – Indivisible are so proud to work alongside with all of you. We know that together we will make democracy work for the people.
