Contact Your Senators and Urge “No” Vote on Senate Tax Bill
The House voted to pass its version of the GOP tax bill, H.R.1 – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, on Thursday, November 16, 227-205. Check out FRAC’s alert on the House tax bill. Meanwhile, the Senate Finance Committee is marking up its version of the tax bill, with a full Senate vote expected after Thanksgiving. Both tax bills overwhelmingly benefit the wealthiest individuals and corporations, and will ultimately be paid for by cuts to critical programs, like SNAP, that serve low- and moderate-income people.
Contact your Senators today and urge a “no” vote on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which will make hunger and poverty far worse in this country and will further deepen income inequality.
