What to Say

Here are some talking points you should go over:
  • The GOP tax plan is designed to benefit the top 1% with tax cuts for the wealthy at the expense of working families’ wallets. The top 1% already hold nearly 40% of all of the wealth in the U.S., and Americans agree that they should pay their fair share. Not one penny should go to the 1% — we need a plan for the majority, not just the wealthy.
  • Hardworking Americans can’t afford cuts to health care programs like Medicare and Medicaid in order to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and wealthy corporations. Vote no on this unethical tax plan.
  • The GOP tax plan throws hardworking individuals and families under the bus — while the top 1% gets 80% of the cuts, a quarter of middle class families could see their taxes go up. The American people and their families need you to stand with them — vote no on this tax plan.

Some Tips

Introduce yourself

Introduce yourself, ask for the name of the person who handles tax policy, and share where you're from so your senator’s staff know that you're a constituent. (“Hi, this is Anna calling from Dayton, Ohio. Can I speak to the person in your office who handles tax policy?”)

Say why you’re calling & what you want to happen

State the reason you are calling and the specific action you want your senator to take — the GOP tax plan hurts middle-and-working class families — and ask your senator to vote against it.

Share

After your call, share how the call went on Facebook and Twitter and encourage your friends to reach out to their senator.
