The tax bill is on the verge of passing, but there’s still a chance to stop it.
There are so many reasons to hate this tax overhaul: It imperils healthcare for millions, increases taxes on the middle class, makes it more difficult to pay for grad school, starves critical social services… all while giving massive tax breaks to the rich.
Included in the dirty list is another critical reason: this bill would further wreck our climate. Amongst the many egregious provisions are BILLIONS in new subsidies to the fossil fuel industry. The Senate version even goes so far as to open up oil drilling in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).
Representatives of the GOP from the House and Senate are about to start meeting to hammer out the differences between their tax bills. That's why we need to ACT NOW and let our representatives know we'll be holding them personally accountable for how they vote. Add your name.
