Call Republicans in Congress now and tell them to stop trying to scam middle-class Americans and pass a fair tax plan:


There's no getting around just how bad this GOP tax scam is for most Americans. Here are the top four take-aways of where things stand:

#1 Republican senators didn't even read the bill: Instead, they passed it under the cloak of darkness this past Saturday morning, after its pieces were being redrafted and edited hours before the vote. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker even hosted a late-night Facebook Live broadcast at his office in which he attempted to read the 500-page text, but couldn't even get a quarter of the way through it before he was forced to return to the Senate floor.

#2 The GOP tax plan raises the deficit: Hardworking Americans woke up Saturday morning to a tax plan which raises our deficit by $1.4 trillion -- to the benefit of big corporations and the 1%, and all at the expense of programs like CHIP that help children access health care, the G.I. Bill that helps veterans and their families get a college education, and other important programs that people count on for subsidies to afford health care.

#3 The GOP tax plan raises taxes on the middle class: Even while adding to the deficit, this tax plan raises taxes on most middle-class families. Within a decade, nearly half of Americans would see an increase in their taxes.

#4 Here's what's next: Right now, Republicans in the House and Senate are working behind closed doors to reconcile the differences between their two plans. They have the power to demand, create, and pass legitimate tax reform that works for all Americans, not just those at the top. But with Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell running the show, and Trump impatient to sign something, we're not holding our breath for them to do the right thing.

Democratic senators and House members are doing everything they can to fight for better options.

And we need to do our part too. Call Congress now and tell them that we demand a tax plan that works for EVERY American, not millionaires, billionaires, and corporations:


We'll keep you updated as the situation changes. Thank you for helping fight back.

Fw: Mark my words

This is class warfare, led by the Koch brothers and other wealthy Republican campaign contributors.

BYONG -
I believe that historians will look back at the early morning hours of Dec. 2, 2017, and conclude that it was one of the great acts of thievery in the history of the United States.
Let me be very clear about what is happening here. It is an extraordinarily cynical "two-step" process. First, Republicans are looting the Treasury. They are stealing trillions of dollars from the American people in order to give huge tax breaks to billionaires and large corporations. Second, as their tax breaks increase the deficit by $1.4 trillion, they will come back and, in the name of "deficit reduction," propose major cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, education, nutrition, affordable housing and other programs desperately needed by the shrinking middle class.
This is class warfare, led by the Koch brothers and other wealthy Republican campaign contributors. More for the rich. Less for working families. Our job now is to stand up and fight back.
That is why last weekend I spoke to large crowds in Louisville, Kentucky, Dayton and Akron, Ohio, and Reading, Pennsylvania. Over 5,000 people took time out of their weekend to attend these high energy meetings in person and almost one million watched on-line. At these rallies activists heard not only from me, but from working people, DREAMers, nurses, Planned Parenthood patients and others about how this tax bill would negatively impact them, their kids, their parents and the future of our country.
Everyone made it absolutely clear that we need to keep fighting against this disastrous piece of legislation and not stop until we defeat it.
This legislation now goes to something called a "conference committee" where the House and Senate work out the differences between their respective bills. Then, the bill comes back for final passage. That means we probably have about three or four weeks to educate and organize the American people to defeat this dangerous bill. Please, get on the phone to your House and Senate members. Email them. Spread the word to your friends by social media. Talk to your co-workers. In the midst of massive income and wealth inequality, this country does not need more tax breaks for billionaires.
I will not stop until we defeat this disastrous piece of legislation. But I cannot do it alone:


(A packed house in Akron, Ohio on Saturday Night.)
One point I made clear at each stop on this trip is that Donald Trump, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have a plan.
Mark my words. Once they pass this bill, they will claim we need to deal with the deficit by cutting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. You don't have to take my word for it. Here is what the New York Times wrote this weekend:
"As the tax cut legislation passed by the Senate early Saturday hurtles toward final approval, Republicans are preparing to use the swelling deficits made worse by the package as a rationale to pursue their long-held vision: undoing the entitlements of the New Deal and Great Society, leaving government leaner and the safety net skimpier for millions of Americans."
You might recall that during the campaign Donald Trump told the American people time and time again that he would not cut Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid. Well, like so much else, it is clear he was lying.
Remember, this legislation has nothing to do with what the American people want. Poll after poll shows that ordinary Americans are strongly opposed to this giveaway to the rich. On the other hand, this "tax reform" has everything to do with what wealthy campaign contributors want. It has everything to do with a corrupt campaign finance system. This bill is nothing more payback time for those who finance the Republican Party.


(Capacity crowd in Reading, Pennsylvania on Sunday)
Make no mistake about it. The political momentum is with us. A few weeks ago, on Election Day, Nov. 7, 2017, Donald Trump's name may not have been on the ballot, but Trumpism was. And it suffered a massive defeat. From coast to coast, in small towns and large cities, working people and young people, many of them first time candidates, ran for office - and won. Voter turnouts in many parts of the country were surprisingly high.
People are fighting back to reclaim their democracy. They are fighting for a government and economy that works for all of us, not just the 1 percent. And now we have got to continue that pressure. Our job in the next few weeks is to make our voices heard louder than ever. Yes. If we do that, we can stop this morally bankrupt bill.
In solidarity,
Bernie Sanders
