Happy Tax Day! How are you feeling about Republicans’ big tax cut for the rich? Seeing a big boost in your bank account? Yeah, we didn’t think so. #TaxDay #GOPTaxScam
Your fellow voters hate the new tax law, too. vox.com/policy-and-pol…
But wealthy political donors love it — and last year they turned around and funneled some of their savings back into GOP candidates’ coffers. #GOPTaxScam #TaxDay
And, of course, giant corporations love it too. Just 4 pharma companies alone saved $7 billion in taxes in 2018. #TaxDay axios.com/oxfam-drug-com…
Did you pay more than $0 for your 2018 taxes? If so, you paid more than all these corporations:
Republicans said the #GOPTaxScam would pay for itself. It didn’t, and now they’re using the resulting deficits as an excuse to cut funding for — well, everything they can. Like education. thinkprogress.org/betsy-devos-be…
Because Americans don’t want a handout! Unless they’re the richest Americans, in which case … yes, they would like a handout, please. #TaxDay
By the way, your taxes will probably go *up* in 2026 when some of the law expires. The corporate tax cuts, naturally, are permanent. #GOPTaxScam prospect.org/article/two-bi…
Meanwhile, the GOP pushed the law through so quickly (on party line votes) that it was full of errors and oversights. But hey, they gave their richest donors what they asked for. nytimes.com/2018/03/11/us/…
Bottom line: This was a $1.5 trillion giveaway to the ultrawealthy and corporations — a giveaway the rest of us will eventually pay for in one way or another. The GOP wants you to forget they did this. Don’t. #TaxDay
PS: The GOP has been cutting the IRS budget for years, leaving it unable to pursue tax cheats. Audits of the rich have plummeted — and they've fallen much faster than audits of the poor. #TaxDay propublica.org/article/how-th…
