Call Congress for Tax Fairness

The Senate voted to end the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2% last Wednesday because of your calls and letters. Now a similar vote is set for the U.S. House of Representatives as early as Wednesday, August 1st.

Tell your Representative: You OPPOSE extending the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2% -- even temporarily. You SUPPORT extending the Bush tax cuts for the 98%. Middle-class tax-cut legislation should not be held hostage to give another big tax break to the rich.

Remember you have the facts on your side:

  • A wealthy person who earns $1 million a year gets an average tax break of about $150,000 from the Bush tax cuts.
  • When the rich get tax breaks they don’t need and the country can’t afford -- hard-working, middle-class Americans like you have to make up the difference — and that's not fair.
  • Under the GOP plan, 25 million American families will face a tax increase of about $1,000.
