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 and children. 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%, and if you voted for this tax plan, we’re coming for your seat next year and beyond.
  • 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, and 13 million Americans certainly can’t afford to lose health insurance. This whole process has been based on secrets, lies, and hiding the ball from the American people. We deserve better.
  • The GOP tax plan throws hardworking individuals and families under the bus — while the top 1% gets most of the benefit, half of Americans would see their taxes go up by 2027. The American people and their families needed you to stand with them — we won’t forget this vote at the ballot box.

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 will take — the GOP tax plan hurts middle-and-working class families — and you will be voting against your GOP elected officials in 2018 and beyond.

Share

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