Urge Your Members of Congress to Vote “No” on Dangerous Tax Bill

On Saturday, December 2, the Senate passed its amended version of H.R.1 — Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, 51-49. Appointed Republican Members from the House and Senate are now working in a Conference Committee to reconcile the differences between the House and Senate versions of the tax cut bill, with a goal to send a bill to the President by the end of the year.

The GOP tax cut overwhelmingly benefits the wealthiest individuals and corporations and will ultimately be paid for by cuts to programs that reach low- and moderate-income households. The tax cut bill increases the deficit by more than $1.4 trillion over 10 years, and GOP leadership has already indicated their intent to work on “welfare reform” (cuts to programs like SNAP) next year to partly pay for the tax cuts.

Call, email, and Tweet at your Members of Congress and urge them to vote “No” on the tax cut bill — and to speak out against it. Be sure to sign up for FRAC’s Action Alerts for actions needed, talking points, tips for reaching out to Members of Congress, and other resources.
