Bad tax proposal to be voted on next week

November 10, 2017

Next week, the U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to consider H.R. 1, the mis-named “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.” This legislation is bad policy for low-and middle-income Americans; it will cause great harm to public education; it could mean huge tax increases for families already saddled with exorbitant medical costs; it is mean-spirited towards immigrants and non-citizens; and it is bad economic policy.  It represents an opportunity lost in terms of what is needed to help all American families prosper, not just the wealthy few.

For more information on the bill, as well as what you can do to advocate, please read the attached Action Alert.
