Whether at a town hall or other public event, a district or DC office visit, a phone call, an email to staff, get your members of Congress (Republicans and Democrats alike) on the record and demand answers to these questions on the Trump tax scam.
I don’t believe that cutting taxes for the rich will do anything for the economy, except to make the rich richer. I’ve paid taxes my whole life and think that you, as my Representative, should be prioritizing me and my family, not the wealthy. Will you commit to me, your constituent, that you will oppose any new tax cuts for the rich?
Few corporations actually pay their fair share in taxes. Many pay none at all. It’s unfair that many rich corporations are paying less in taxes than people like me. Even Donald Trump is bragging about how corporate profits have never been higher. If that’s true, then why do they need a huge tax cut? Will you commit to me, your constituent, that you will oppose any tax plan that cuts taxes for corporations or leaves corporate tax loopholes in place?
I am worried that Trump’s tax plan, and the one I have seen from House Speaker Paul Ryan, would increase the deficit by trillions of dollars. And since Republicans in the Senate want to pass the bill through reconciliation, they’ll have to offset these huge tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations with cuts to Medicare and Medicaid in order to make them permanent. Will you commit to me, your constituent, that you will oppose any tax plan that jeopardizes Medicare and Medicaid to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations?
Without his tax returns, the American people have no way of knowing how much tax cuts will benefit Trump and his businesses. The taxpayers deserve to know if our hard-earned money is going to the President’s personal gain. Will you oppose any tax cuts until President Trump release his tax returns so that the American people can fully understand how it will personally benefit him and his businesses?
