The Senate is set to vote on a disastrous tax bill this week, after their House counterparts passed a tax reform bill earlier this month. Much like the House plan, this bill would punish working families and reward the wealthy elites with tax breaks.

To pay for tax giveaways to the richest individuals and major corporations, here’s what the bill will do to working people:

  • Permanently raise taxes on everyone making under $75,000 a year by 2027.
  • Entirely eliminate deductions that many working people rely on, like State/Local Property and Income Tax deductions.
  • Immediately cut Medicare funding and repeal the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate, causing 13 million people to lose their health insurance while increasing premiums.

Your senators need to hear from you! Call now and urge them to reject this anti-worker tax plan.

Here’s a suggested call script:
