Tools You Can Use

Action 1: DAY OF ACTION - Phone Bank at Home or in Person to Fight the #TrumpTaxScam

The Trump Tax Scam is tax cuts for the wealthy paid for by the rest of us. The bill would mean everyone making less than $75,000 a year would, on average, see a tax INCREASE while corporations get permanent tax cuts. And now as if deep tax cuts to line the pockets of their billionaire donors at the expense of students and seniors weren’t enough, Senate Republicans want to leave 13 million people uninsured and raise your health care premiums, too.

This fight will come down to just a couple of Senators and time is running out. The Senate could vote on a motion to proceed (the pre-vote vote) as soon as TODAY and bring the bill to a full floor vote as early as Thursday, November 30.

Indivisible has brought back a super effective peer-to-peer calling tool from the TrumpCare fight to help stop this bill by reaching out to progressive constituents in three key states: Alaska, Arizona, and West Virginia. The calling tool will connect you to a constituent in a target state and give you a script to emphasize the devastating impact of this bill. Then, you’ll ask them to call their Senator on the spot. This tool will help make the wave of constituent pressure we need to stop this bill once and for all.

 Today is Indivisible’s nationwide Day of Action, and we’ve got phone bank sessions scheduled around the city. We hope you’ll join us!

 Phone bank against the #TrumpTaxScam two ways:
