HEADLINES & TV CLIPS: National Day of Action Spotlights the Candidates and Activists Fueling the Republican Tax Scam Backlash

Yesterday, Democratic candidates, the DCCC’s March into ‘18 organizers, and grassroots activists led a national day of action to hold vulnerable House Republicans accountable for their Tax Scam that attacks the middle class and gives cuts to big corporations and the rich. With every credible poll showing that this Republican Tax Scam is widely – and increasingly- unpopular, the backlash to the bill is growing stronger by the day.

The Republican tax plan leaves the middle class out in the cold

It's chilly today in Lancaster — but do you know who is REALLY being left out in the cold? The middle class. The Republican tax scheme would give HUGE breaks to the super-wealthy while ending critical deductions for student debt, medical expenses, and state and local taxes.Plus, it would blow a $1.5 TRILLION hole in the federal deficit. What happened to fiscal responsibility?Join me in saying NO to this awful tax plan:
