We Must Continue to Fight the GOP Tax Bill

he idea that the Republican tax reform plan was supposed to be a middle class tax cut was a lie from the start. This is a bill to give huge, permanent tax breaks to corporations and their wealthy CEOs while raising taxes on 87 million middle class households and throwing 13 million people off of health insurance. Republican Rep. Mark Sanford admitted what we’ve known from the start: “From a truth in advertising standpoint it would have been a lot simpler if we just acknowledged really on this bill, which is it’s fundamentally a corporate tax reduction and restructuring bill, period,” he said.

This is why we need to fight back and make sure this bill fails—and demand that Congress pass legislation to make sure corporations start paying their fair share in taxes, not even less than they are now.
