Action 1: Condemn Rauner’s Tax Bill Remarks

Yesterday, Governor Rauner said he is ”applauding Congress” for their tax bill that is set to raise taxes on the middle class. Yes, he actually applauded a bill that will cause 916,000 Illinois families to see a tax increase. And that’s on top of the 525,000 people in Illinois who would lose health insurance coverage if this bill passes.

The bill may pass any day now, and we need to keep the pressure on all elected representatives to let them know that supporting this bill is a slap in the face to middle class and low-income families -- all so the richest Americans can hoard even more of their wealth.

Call Governor Rauner to let him know what you think of his support for the GOP Tax Scam! Springfield 217-782-0244 | Chicago 312-814-2121

Script: Hello, I’m [name] calling from [zip code], and I’m a member of Indivisible Chicago. I’m calling let the Governor that the support he gave to the GOP tax bill is a huge blow to the 916,000 Illinois families who will see a tax increase if this bill passes. It’s shameful that the Governor supports a bill that will hurt his constituents to protect the wealthy. I urge him to retract his support immediately. Thank you.

Action 2: 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 has passed a motion to proceed as of yesterday and the bill is expected to come to a full vote on Friday.

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.
