Stop Tax Giveaways

Overview:

The House Tax Plan exploits middle and low income families by cutting popular deductions, raising the lowest tax bracket, and exploding the deficit to give tax breaks to the most wealthy Americans and profitable corporations.

Why This Matters:

The Tax Plan does not give any way to pay for new tax breaks, which will increase the deficit by TRILLIONS of dollars. This deficit increase will later result in cuts to social programs, including SNAP, WIC, and Child Nutrition Programs, as well as housing assistance, disability services for children, child care, Head Start, Pell Grants that help low-income students pay for college, tax credits for low and middle income families, and health care.

What You Can Do:

1. Contact your Congressperson in the House of Representatives and ask them to reject this plan, and any other plan that increases the deficit and leaves behind low-income and moderate income families.
2. Contact Utah’s Senators and ask them to not support the House Tax Plan and work for a bi-partisan Senate Plan that doesn't increase the deficit and doesn't leave out low and moderate income families.
3. Ask them, “What are you going to do, specifically, to protect and strengthen the programs that low-income working families need to make ends meet?”

Suggested Script: I'm ---- -----, a constituent calling to request that Senator/Rep ____ support Utah families and protect Utahns by rejecting the House Tax Plan. House leaders’ new tax plan will add trillions to the deficit at the expense of working families, funded by slashing support for Medicaid, nutrition programs, education, and more. Meanwhile, the plan’s boost to the Child Tax Credit (CTC) leaves out 10 million children in low-income families and takes the CTC away from millions of children in immigrant families. It’s wrong to give special tax breaks to the wealthy and powerful at the expense of low-income families. Please tell Rep./Sen._____________ to reject this reckless plan. Thank you.
