#TrumpTaxScam Tuesday. It doesn’t work.

We still have time to wreck the GOP’s #TrumpTaxScam and shame them in front of their corporate masters…so call now!

#1- It doesn’t actually work

  • The Treasury Department admits the GOP tax plan won’t pay for itself through increased economic growth. The one-page analysis says “a combination of regulatory reform, infrastructure development, and welfare reform is needed to offset the cost of the tax plan. (Politico / Axios)
  • “Welfare reform” = Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security along with traditional aid programs.
  • There was a HYOOGE error in the Senate’s corporate alternate minimum tax
  • A group of 13 tax law professors and lawyers, many of whom have been vocal opponents of the Republican plan, published a 34-page paper offering a taste of what those unintended consequences might be.

#2 – More and more people don’t want it. This scam can still fall apart.

  • poll/ 32% of Americans support the GOP tax plan – the lowest level of public support for any major piece of legislation enacted in the past three decades. 53% say it won’t help the economy in a major way. (USA Today)
  • CA GOP representatives are vulnerable. If the state tax deduction doesn’t reappear in the negotiations, they’re political toast.
  • New Yorkers have Trump’s phone number and want him to change things, like the removal of the property tax deduction.
  • Susan Collins may wake up and realize she’s been played over the promised health care bills.
Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to express my strong disapproval of H.R. 1, the disastrous Republican tax scam, and to ask that Rep. [___] vote against it when it comes out of the conference committee.

More script if you need it: This proposed tax scam must be stopped. The GOP is targeting welfare, Medicare and Medicaid spending to pay for their own faulty, deficit-producing tax scam OR  [insert personal reason], or find your favorite reason here.
