Cal Labor Fed Protests Tax Bill Dec 4-6, 2017
by Organize the Unorganized
Monday Dec 4th, 2017 8:35 AM
All hands on deck! We have to defeat the bill that would harm millions of working people so the rich can get even bigger tax breaks.
All hands on deck! We have to defeat the bill that would harm millions of working people so the rich can get even bigger tax breaks. If passed under current budget rules the GOP tax bill would result in immediate cuts of over $100 billion in health and human services, including $25 billion per year to Medicare. This quarter-trillion dollar cut would impact the care of seniors and people with disabilities as well as their families that all depend on this crucial program. There are several emergency events planned around California [this] week to fight back against this cruel, despicable bill.

The full press release at http://calaborfed.org/press-releases/working-people-seniors-faith-leaders-community-groups-to-rally-across-california-to-protest-gop-trump-tax-bill/, states the following:

"The actions will call on GOP members of Congress to reject final passage of the bill as it heads to a joint Senate-House conference committee this week. The bill is projected to add over $1 trillion to the federal deficit, triggering massive automatic cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and many other vital programs."

"The repeal of portions of the Affordable Care Act included in the bill would result in 1.7 million Californians losing their health insurance in the next decade and would spike premiums for nearly everyone else. The bill will also add to most Californians’ tax burden while providing massive tax breaks to the large corporations and millionaires and billionaires who fund political campaigns. Newspaper editorials from across the state have sharply criticized the bill as a rotten deal for California."

It describes the Cal Labor Federation as follows:

The California Labor Federation is made up of more than 1,200 unions, representing 2.1 million union members in manufacturing, retail, construction, hospitality, public sector, health care, entertainment and other industries.

Call: 1-844-899-9913. Tell your representative to stop raising taxes on the workingclass to make the rich richer.
NOTE TO ALL CALIFORNIANS: California has 15 Republican congresspeople out of 53 congresspeople in the California delegation. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_congressional_delegations_from_California

The House of Representatives has 240 Republicans, 194 Democrats, 1 vacancy, a difference of 46. See https://pressgallery.house.gov/member-data/party-breakdown

All 15 California Congresspeople need to change their vote, and hopefully labor is doing the same campaign nationwide to change other Congressperson's votes AND all Republican Senators' votes. The Senate vote for this murderous tax bill was 51 to 48, so not many senate votes are need to change the senate vote. The bill has not yet been reconciled between both houses of congress or signed.

WORKINGCLASS UNDER ATTACK! WHAT DO WE DO? ACT UP! FIGHT BACK!
THEY SAY CUT BACK! WE SAY FIGHT BACK!
OUR LIVES ARE ON THE LINE!
