Tell Rep. Poliquin: No Tax Cuts for the Rich
October 4 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us in Lewiston outside the office of Congressman Bruce Poliquin. We will ask him to oppose any bill that cuts taxes for billionaires and big corporations and leaves working families behind. There could be a vote in the House as early as this week.
So come, bring your homemade signs, and we’ll make it clear: Not One Penny of tax cuts for the rich.
More background here:
Every American deserves a chance to find a good paying job, provide for their family and gain the skills they need to thrive in a 21st century economy. In order for the middle and working classes to have a fair shot, everyone—the wealthy and corporations included—need to pay their fair share.
Unfortunately, the administration is pushing a tax plan that would give huge tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires and wealthy corporations—at a price tag of $5.8 trillion. These tax giveaways will line the pockets of hedge fund CEOs, and real estate tycoons, while doing nothing more than hoping some benefit eventually trickles down to the middle class. Tens of millions of Americans who rely on public programs could bear the brunt of these misguided, budget-busting tax breaks. This plan is a clear precursor to slashing benefits like health care and education.
