Talking Points for Your Letter (Personalize Your Message to Congress for the most impact)
Subject Text: Oppose the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act )
- I urge you to oppose the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
- This bill disproportionately benefits high-income households and corporations while increasing taxes on low-income families. If passed, this fiscally irresponsible tax plan will increase our nation's debt and lead to deep cuts to SNAP, Medicaid, and international assistance.
- With 1 in 8 U.S. families struggling to put food on the table, we need a tax reform bill that benefits low-income families by strengthening tax credits for low-income workers. In addition, no tax reform bill should fund tax cuts to high-income earners by cutting funding to programs that help low-income families. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act fails to achieve these goals.
- The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act increases taxes on individuals making less than $75,000, and also cuts funding for other programs that help low-income people.
Tax reform should help, not hurt, low-income families. That's why I urge you to reject the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act , and instead work on a bipartisan tax reform bill that helps those who need help the most.
