TAKE ACTION: Tell Congress TODAY You DO NOT Support Tax Cuts for the Wealthy

President Trump and Republican Congressional leaders have unveiled a tax plan that aims to help the wealthiest 1 percent.

You MUST make your voice heard today as the House is voting on a tax bill that will hurt millions of Americans, just to help the wealthy few.

There are many reasons why the Trump-GOP tax plan is bad for our nation and our state, but here are the three biggest ones, based on recent analysis from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy.

1.    The richest 1 percent in North Carolina would receive 57.6 percent of all the tax breaks, while 1 in 10 taxpayers would see their tax load increase under this regressive shift.

2.    This tax overhaul would put at risk essential services like Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and education. This plan would reduce the government’s revenue by $233 billion in 2018 alone.

3.    In no state is the “middle class” the focus of any benefits, and North Carolina families who itemize their deductions (rather than claiming the standard deduction) may pay higher taxes because the framework repeals most itemized deductions, including the deduction for state and local taxes.

We need you to take a minute today and tell your Representatives that you DO NOT support a tax bill that just helps the wealthy!
