Education Votes: DEFEAT THE TAX BILL


The Senate GOP leadership is rushing their tax bill to a vote as early as tomorrow and we need your help to stop it!

Let’s be clear – this bill is nothing more than a massive tax giveaway to the wealthy and corporate special interests and does nothing to help middle-class families and our communities. It eliminates the state and local tax deduction, which could cut education funding by $370 billion over the next 10 years, and put as many as 370,000 educator jobs at risk. It even includes a provision that will cut Medicaid and take insurance away from millions of people.

Bottom line: the GOP tax plan is a bad deal. It raises taxes on millions of middle class and working families to pay for tax giveaways to corporations and the wealthy.

We cannot let this happen. Contact your Senators, and tell them the middle class shouldn’t have to pay more so the rich can get even richer!

We have to fight for our students. This plan risks cuts to public school funding, educator job losses, and overcrowded classrooms that deprive students of one-on-one attention.

Stand up for students. Call your Senators now and ask them to stand up for education by opposing the Republican tax plan.

Please act now,
