Dear 5849376,

Block the new Trump Tax scam

In 2017, FedEx owed $1.5 billion in taxes. Last year, thanks to the Trump Tax Scam, it owed exactly $0. FedEx lobbied hard for Trump's tax cuts, and in return Trump and his Republican lackeys cut corporate taxes so much that the government actually owed FedEx money in 2018.1

The Trump Tax Scam is a failure – unless you're an international corporation or a billionaire. It is helping corporations evade taxes and the super wealthy hoard wealth by paying lower taxes than working people.2

But corporations and billionaires are Republicans' most coveted supporters, so they're working with Trump on a Tax Scam 2.0 to be unveiled this fall.3 We need to raise our voices now to stop it in its tracks.

The Trump Tax Scam was immoral from the start and has become more unpopular with each passing day. It sabotaged the Affordable Care Act and gave corporations a permanent tax break while individuals and families saw only temporary benefits. Two years later, its success at rewarding the rich and failure to help anyone else could not be clearer:4

  • Corporations dodged taxes.
  • CEOs got rich using tax handouts for stock buybacks.
  • Economic growth lagged behind what was promised.
  • Business investment stalled.
  • Predatory hedge funds got an accidental bonus tax break.
  • The deficit grew and became an excuse to cut the safety net.
  • Our national housing shortage got worse.
  • Billionaires can pay a lower tax rate than working moms.
  • 13 million people were put at risk of losing any health care coverage.

But according to new reports, Trump and his Republican puppets in Congress are planning a new tax scam that would give wealthy individuals the same permanent, non-expiring tax breaks that corporations got the first time around and introduce all sorts of new handouts for the well-connected. We need to stop this horrible idea before it gains momentum.
