Whew, that was a nail biter!
Last week, the Senate voted 51 to 48 to stand up for tax fairness. This week your Representative will cast a vote on two tax cut bills — one that would help millionaires and one that would help working families.
Demand Tax Fairness Now: Call 1-888-744-9958 and listen to easy instructions and a sample script.
H.R. 15, introduced by House Democratic leaders, would end Bush-era tax cuts that benefit only the richest 2% of Americans and extend improved tax credits for low- and moderate-income working families.
H.R. 8, introduced by Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), would leave no millionaire behind by continuing Bush-era tax cuts for the richest 2% of Americans — and end improved tax credits for low- and moderate-income working families.
And here’s the kicker. More than one in three families with children — and three out of four low-income families with children — would lose out under H.R. 8.
Call 1-888-744-9958 and tell your Representative it’s time for the richest 2% to start to pay their fair share. Your Senators heard you loud and clear — now let your Representative know that it’s time to stop balancing the budget on the backs of women and families.
$1 Trillion Dollars. (That’s not a typo!) That’s how much we would save by ending the Bush-era tax cuts for the richest 2% instead of extending them over the next 10 years. This money would go a long way in protecting programs like child care, Head Start, Pell Grants, Medicaid, Title X family planning services, services for the elderly — programs important to women at every stage of their lives.
$160,000 v. $1,545. $160,000 is the average tax cut millionaires will get next year if the tax cuts for the richest 2% are extended. $1,545 is the amount a single mom with two kids who works full time at a minimum wage job will lose if the improved tax credits for working families are ended. Do you think that’s fair?
Calling only takes a minute. Dial 1-888-744-9958 and tell your Representative to end the Bush-era tax cuts for the richest 2% of Americans, not tax cuts for women and their families.
