—Tell Congress to vote NO on the Republican Tax Bil today by calling your Senators at 1-888-885-1748 or using this link to email your senators. We need volume! Tell them: Tell them:
"Hi, my name is [NAME] and I am a constituent from [CITY/TOWN]. As a person of faith, I’m calling you to OPPOSE the Senate tax bill because it is inconsistent with my faith teaching. This plan gives the wealthy and large corporations trillions of dollars in tax cuts and will have devastating effects on programs that I care about, like the Child Tax Credit, Medicare, and more. I urge you to oppose such a reckless tax plan.”
As people of faith, it falls on us to call and email our Senators and tell them vote NO on the Republican tax bill. We need volume! Then we must get our friends in Tennessee, Arizona, Oklahoma, and Maine to call their Senators--who are key to voting on this bill--and say “Vote NO!”
“The House-passed bill fails a basic moral test. It preferences those with the greatest wealth over the needs of people struggling to make ends meet. By taking from people in poverty to give to the wealthiest, the Republican tax plan goes against everything people of faith believe." —Sister Simone Campbell, SSS, Executive Director of NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice
