Action-A-Day 7/5/17: Tell Senator Orrin Hatch & the Senate Finance Committee: No Tax Cuts for the Rich!

ACTION
Tell Senator Orrin Hatch and the Senate Finance Committee: No Tax Cuts for the Rich!

BACKGROUND
Tax reform is at the top of Congressional Republicans' legislative agenda, along with repeal of the ACA. Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch (R - Utah) has asked for input on tax reform from industry groups.

Your comments, as an American taxpayer, matter every bit as much as those from corporate and special interests looking for tax cuts for the super-rich. Tax March and Stand Up America have launched the "Email Orrin" campaign to encourage individual taxpayers to make their voices heard.  

The White House and House Republicans have released tax plans that would lower the top individual tax rate and repeal the estate tax and alternative minimum tax -- "tax reform" that would benefit their wealthiest donors.

"Senator Hatch asked for input from 'stakeholders.' Every taxpaying American is a stakeholder, and far too often they are silent ones when it comes to tax policy. There is no appetite in this country for another government-backed giveaway to millionaires and billionaires at the expense of middle class families." -- Tax March Executive Director Nicole Gill

"The phrase 'tax reform' should not be code words for massive taxpayer funded giveaways to the very wealthiest paid for by gutting health care benefits, public schools and our nation's roads and bridges." -- Jessica Adair, director of partnerships for Stand Up America

TAKE ACTION
Demand that any tax reform bolster middle and working class families -- not pad the pockets of millionaires, billionaires and corporations.

You can submit comments directly to Orrin Hatch and the Senate Finance Committee -- by July 17
