The #GOPTaxScam is not a done deal. Leadership claims there's a deal, but they've lied before. (ACA repeal)

We were the difference then & we can be the difference again here.

Call all 3 of your members of Congress today. ☎️🚨

Republicans have agreed on a “reconciled” tax bill retaining many of the highly unpopular provisions of the versions passed earlier by the House and Senate.…
The full text of the tax bill, which would take effect on Jan. 1st, still isn’t public as it was drafted by Republicans in secret, and is likely to include many unpleasant surprises, such as eliminating incentives to develop orphan drugs for rare diseases.…
The final bill contains massive tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy while raising taxes for many middle class taxpayers.…
The tax bill seriously undermines the ACA by eliminating the individual mandate.…
While Rs don’t want to wait for a CBO score on the bill, it is expected to generate huge deficits that will result in dramatic spending cuts, which Paul Ryan is already “promising” to offset with cuts to crucial programs like Medicare and Medicaid.…
No public hearings were held on the new tax bill until after the deal was made, and then, only one procedurally required committee meeting, which was held Tuesday.…
The hearing was total sham, with the Democrats not even allowed to see the bill or have any questions answered.…
There is no legit reason to rush the tax bill through and Senate Ds are calling on Rs not to hold a final vote until Doug Jones is sworn into the Senate, as Rs demanded on the ACA when Republican Scott Brown replaced Ted Kennedy in a special election.
.@GOP is determined to pass a tax bill to satisfy donors, but given the numerous problems, conflicting interests among legislators & the adverse impacts on their constituents, it is still possible we can defeat this terrible bill with sustained pressure.…
Thank you for taking time to make a difference today.
