Congress is considering a partisan tax bill that will significantly impact every American. It re-writes much of our tax code, giving enormous tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans while leaving the middle class behind. In addition, it will dramatically increase the deficit by at least $1.5 trillion.
This bill was crafted in secret, behind closed doors, so that Americans wouldn’t know what was in it. The bill has had no hearings and Republicans refuse to allow input from Members of Congress and the American people. Like with their failed attempt to pass TrumpCare, Republicans are trying to ram the bill through Congress only weeks after releasing it, hoping to avoid public scrutiny.
Every American deserves to have their voice heard by Congress in this critical debate on taxes—both supporters and opponents. Civic engagement with Congress is enshrined in the Constitution. GOPTaxBill.us is an effort to increase transparency and accountability and assure Americans that they have a voice in Congress.
