Action 1: Get Republicans in IA, SC, NC, FL, NJ, and MI to Demand Trump’s Taxes!

Democrats in congress are doing what we’ve asked – they have pledged to obstruct any and all tax reform efforts until Trump releases his tax returns.  And Republicans in congress are starting to come around. Republican representatives in IA, SC, NC, FL, NJ, and MI have said that Trump should release his taxes. If you have any friends in these states, send them an email asking them to call the representatives listed below to thank them and urge them to push harder. Bonus points if they call ALL of their reps and demand they request Trump’s taxes as well!

The following Republican representatives have said that Trump should release his tax returns: 

  • IA: Sen. Joni Ernst, Rep. David Young
  • FL: Rep. Matt Gaetz, Rep. Ted Yoho
  • NC: Rep. Walter B. Jones
