THANK YOU to everyone who has taken action to fight the GOP’s tax bills. In the very early hours of Saturday morning, the Senate voted to pass their version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Every Republican except one voted for the bill, with no Democratic support.

This is bad news, but it’s not over yet. The House now needs to decide whether they will work with the Senate to reconcile the differences between the two bills by going to conference, or they can forego that process and vote on the Senate version – and this can happen as early as today!

The fate of this bill is in our Representatives’ hands. It is vital that they hear from you today! Take Action Now!

Find your Representative’s number at Contacting Congress or call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 or (202) 224-3091 (TTY).

  • Use Resistbot to turn your text into faxes, mail, or hand-delivered letters.
  • Fax your Representative (use com to find their fax number).
  • Email, post on Facebook, or Tweet your Representative with information on Contacting Congress.

Tell them:

Repealing the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate will significantly increase premiums and 13 million fewer people will have insurance.

  • Increasing the deficit by over $1 trillion sets the stage for slashing Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and other vital programs disabled people rely on.
  • By triggering the “Pay-As-You-Go” (PAYGO) Budget Rule, this bill will automatically force billions in cuts – and in some cases, total elimination – to essential programs including Medicare and Vocational Rehabilitation basic State grants.

Everyone should call their Representatives today, but there some Representatives that have been identified as high priority targets. If you live in these states, or if you know people who do, please make sure they are contacted!
