- The #TrumpTaxScam is in full swing. Just as they did with health care, Senate Republicans are attempting to ram through tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires by passing a budget resolution that creates the “rules” for reconciliation (50 Senate votes, plus the Vice President as the tie-breaker). They’ve already passed the bill out of the House and appropriate Senate Committees, teeing up a full vote on the budget resolution. This is the first step in passing the Trump Tax Scam and… we can beat them. Again. Visit www.trumptaxscam.org to find out how you can help stop Trump’s giveaway to the wealthy budgeted on the backs of middle class families.
Oh, and if you missed last week’s Facebook Live with the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities talking about the scam and what you can do to stop it, catch up now!
- Congress must pass a bipartisan health care stabilization bill.On Thursday, Trump took two executive actions in his attempt to sabotage the Affordable Care Act and do some of what Senate Republicans were unable to do (twice). First, he issued an executive order designed to siphon healthy people out of the regular insurance markets; then, he ordered that the administration stop making payments to insurers that they depend on to provide financial assistance to low-income consumers. Both actions will result in higher premiums and more uninsured Americans...and will cost taxpayers more than just making sure people can get coverage. Read our explainer, and tell your member of Congress and senators that they must support a bill to protect consumers and stabilize insurance markets.
ICYMI, check out this take on Trump’s sabotage featuring Indivisible’s health care policy manager Chad Bolt.
- We need a clean #DreamActNow. Let’s be clear: DREAMers aren’t bargaining chips for increased detention and deportations, a border wall, and putting a target on undocumented parents. It’s time for your Member of Congress to take a stand. Read our explainer and demand that your representative and senators take the "DREAMer Pledge."
