RESIST! Call on your MOCs to stop final passage of the GOP Tax Scam Bill

Over the weekend the Senate voted to pass the Republicans' sweeping, multi-trillion dollar tax bill. This bill would result in a reported $1.4 trillion deficit increase, besides handing tax cuts to the wealthy and to corporate interests, while punishing middle-class and working families.  The House may vote on the Senate version, or the House and Senate will go to Conference Committee to craft a compromise bill for House and Senate votes.  The tax-scam bill could be stopped if it goes to Conference Committee. If this bill passes:  Medicare and Medicaid are at stake, the budget deficit will balloon.  Repeal of the ACA mandate threatens the ACA and will hike health insurance costs for Americans. Alaska’s ANWR wilderness will be opened to oil drilling.  Millions of middle Americans will pay higher taxes.  Call your MOCs!  Tell them this bill must be stopped!

Script:

Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [ZIP CODE].  I’m furious that the Senate voted to pass the Tax Bill on Saturday.  It is irresponsible to increase the budget deficit so that the Republicans can cut taxes for corporate interests.  I’m angry that Alaska’s ANWR wilderness is being desecrated for oil drilling.  The bill attacks the ACA and will make health insurance even more unaffordable for Americans.  Please take every measure to stop this bill from final passage.  [If leaving voicemail, give your full street address so you’ll be counted.]
