The Trump Tax Scam is still wildly unpopular, especially among women — only 30 percent of women in the U.S. approve of the law. And a majority of people say the law hasn’t improved their family’s financial situation, like the Republicans promised when they passed the law on a partisan basis in December 2017.
This Tax Day, working families are paying their fair share of taxes, but the same can’t be said of the wealthy and big corporations. The Trump-GOP tax cuts that cost nearly $2 trillion are mostly benefiting the rich at the expense of the rest of us. President Trump and Republicans in Congress now want to pay for their tax giveaways by cutting Medicaid, SNAP (food stamps), after school programs, education and more services millions of us depend on every day.
President Trump promised that corporations would use their tax cuts to give working families a $4,000 pay raise. But instead, corporations making record profits thanks to their huge tax cuts are giving almost nothing to their workers. Instead, they are distributing their tax cuts to wealthy CEOs and shareholders.
Instead, Congress needs to pass tax policies that boost working families, like improvements to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit.
Democrats in the House of Representatives ALL signed on to this bill except one. Where are the Republicans who are “the champions of working people?”
