Upspeakable immorality, insatiable greed.

 Animosity towards the poor and unbridled greed from the wealthy and powerful isn’t new. There were discussions a couple of thousand years ago. (Yep, we’re going there!)

King James Bible
“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” (Matthew 19:24)

And here we are. 2017 and poor and fragile citizens will actually die as a result of this #TrumpTaxScam. This goes against the morality of all good people, religious and not.

The GOP tax bill will trigger automatic cuts worth $136 billion from mandatory spending in 2018, including $25 billion in Medicare cuts. Other programs not protected by cut limitations will be wiped out.

The Senate’s removal of the ACA mandate from their tax scam will result in 13 million people losing their health insurance so that Congress can have back $338 billion to add to tax cut rates for businesses and wealthy individuals.

Fight back for all of us.

IF YOU’VE CALLED BEFORE, CALL AGAIN! Make their phone lines burn!

Minimal Script for a Democratic Legislator: 

I’m calling from [zip code] and I want to thank Rep.[Carbajal/Brownley] and Senator [Harris/Feinstein] for opposing the House/ Senate GOP tax bills.

We never asked for a tax cut. Are you ready to write things down?

What we want is accessible, comprehensive and affordable health care, protection of our social safety nets like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, investment in our schools and public infrastructure, affordable higher education for all, and protection of our air, water and natural resources. (Add on anything thing else we missed!)

Minimal Script for a Republican Legislator:

What we want is accessible, comprehensive and affordable health care, protection of our social safety nets like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, investment in our schools and public infrastructure, affordable higher education for all, and protection of our air, water and natural resources. (Add on anything thing else we missed!)

Please tell your boss that if he/she/they  [___] vote for this fraudulent rich-get-richer scheme over our best interests, he/she/they will need a career backup plan after the next election.
