Target: Incoming Members of Congress
Conservative politicians such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell incorrectly claim that government spending is the problem, which is why they demand deep cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and more. The reality is the exact opposite. We have a revenue problem. Our government raises far too little money for the programs and services we all depend on today — let alone what we’ll need tomorrow.
But we can turn this around by demanding that the wealthy and corporations pay their fair share of taxes.
This includes closing tax loopholes that encourage corporations to shift jobs and profits offshore.
It includes a robust estate tax to curb dynastic wealth and reduce economic inequality.
It means making sure the super-rich are taxed at a much higher rate than the rest of us.
And, it means repealing the Trump-GOP tax breaks for the rich and corporations!
It’s critical that we tell incoming members of Congress where we stand.
Sign the petition telling the next Congress: Put forward a progressive tax-reform agenda. Repeal the Trump-GOP tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations and make them pay their fair share.
