Tax Day

We stand with the thousands of Americans marching for tax fairness across the country today. They’re showing that organizing and voting are the best ways to effect change and hold our elected leaders accountable.

Trump and Republicans promised their signature tax bill would be for the middle class, that it would create jobs, spur investment and wage growth, and that it would pay for itself. Those were all lies. Here’s what’s really happening:

  • More than 80% of its benefits by 2027 will go to the top 1%.
  • Corporations are using their massive tax windfalls to benefit their wealthy shareholders, not their workers.
  • The CBO says it will add $1.8 trillion to the deficit over the next decade.
  • A majority of Americans continue to oppose the Trump tax.

The Trump tax law was written by Republicans for their donors and gives massive windfalls to Wall Street, big corporations, and the wealthiest individuals.

This includes Trump himself, who stands to gain enormously from his own tax scam. However, we can’t know exactly how much because Trump refuses to release his tax returns.

Americans can see through the GOP’s lies and are hungry for real leadership in Washington that will stand up for middle-class families. Democrats will continue to fight for tax fairness and greater economic opportunities for all Americans, not just those at the top.
