Tax scam is headed to President's desk

Posted Dec. 20, 2017 by

A #TaxScam bill is headed to President Trump’s desk that’s the most unpopular tax bill in U.S. history. The reasons for its unpopularity are clear: the bill increases the taxes on the lower and middle classes; kicks 13 million people off of health care; gives huge, permanent tax cuts to wealthy corporations, especially those with commercial real estate holdings like the President; encourages offshoring of jobs; and automatically makes cuts to Medicare for seniors.

In short, the bill gives 83 percent of the tax cuts to the richest 1 percent of Americans. No wonder it’s being universally panned by the country’s working families. Americans for Tax Fairness has done an in-depth analysis where you can learn more about how the middle class is getting hosed.

“Middle class Americans deserve better than this from our elected officials. What happened to looking after the little guy? This bill is only looking after the wealthy and well-connected. This is not what America needs,” said OCSEA President Chris Mabe. “We need good paying jobs and opportunities for working people.”
