Listen up dummies!
1/ Here’s the scoop on what they hell is going on with #GOPTaxScam.
A couple days ago, the conference committee (Senate and House conferees) for #TaxCutsandJobsAct (barf) or #HR1 voted to move the bill to the House for a vote.
2/ This morning the House voted (227-203) to pass and it moved to the Senate.
(Ok, we knew that would happen, the House if fucking crazy and no one really understands them.)
3/ The Senate is slightly less batshit crazy and is where the real shit happens.
Sooooo…this afternoon, because the GOP is RUSHING to get this passed AND the Senate votes on EVERYTHING; a Motion to Proceed (MTP) on #HR1 passed (51-48 McCain absent).

We have only days to kill the #GOPTaxScam

We must call, fax write & show up to our Senators & House Representatives. Relentlessly. 🔥

Here's a script and why. 1/x
#TheResistance #TaxScam
We know the House has passed their version of the #GOPTaxPlan. We have no time to lose. We are in a race to defeat this. The Senate will be trying to pass their version next, but we can’t just wait on that. We need to full on hit the House & Senate to defeat this NOW. 2/x
The ordinary process (rule of order) for a tax plan is:
1. House and Senate pass their separate versions.
2 .There is a "conference" on a compromise.
3. The final compromise through BOTH Senate and House again.
4. The President signs it into law. 3/x #GOPTaxScam

HEADS UP: Here are 10 things I’ll bet you didn’t know about the GOP tax scam, but that should get you super angry when you find out:
1) GOP tax scam cuts Medicare! Yup, it does. By $28 billion NEXT YEAR alone.
2) GOP tax scam eliminates the tax credit that encourages businesses to hire VETERANS, especially veterans with disabilities. Not a joke.

RED ALERT: The Trump tax bill being rammed through Congress right now is confusing so let me break down what it’ll mean for you. Spoiler: You’ll get stuck with the bill. Follow along for details. 1/

47 million households will get a tax hike! Yes, you read that right. In a plan that cuts taxes for corporations and millionaires, millions of middle-class families—especially those with children—get a tax increase. 2/

Health care costs will skyrocket. Families won’t be able to get a deduction for large out-of-pocket medical expenses. The GOP budget includes giant cuts to Medicaid & Medicare. AND they are considering repealing a key part of the ACA as part of the tax bill. 3/

The Republican tax bill looks like it was written by Donald Trump’s accountants and tax lawyers, and I’m not even joking. 1/
It would be hard to design a tax plan more friendly to billionaire real estate magnates like the Trumps and Kushners of the world. 2/
Where to begin? How about the “Trump Loophole” – the special low tax rate for wealthy “passthrough” owners. (Sec. 1004 of the bill.) 3/

House GOP dropped their tax bill today and boy are the media headlines missing the mark. /1
GOP is selling it as a big middle class tax cut – when it’s actually Christmas come early for corporations & the ultra-rich.
The biggest winners are corporations, who’ll see their tax rate drop massively from 35% to 20%. /3

Let's talk about where things stand in the health care fight—which is now a bunch of fights. Repeal is on hold. But danger's not passed. 1/x
Biggest thing: first the GOP came for health care to pay for tax cut for the rich. Now it's tax cuts for rich, paid for by health care cuts.
The House votes Thu on a 2018 budget resolution. Hidden inside: $473 billion in Medicare cuts and $1 TRILLION in Medicaid cuts.
