Hold Your MoC Accountable for Voting for the Trump Tax Scam


Nearly every Republican in the House and Senate voted for the Trump Tax Scam every time it came to the floor (you can see if your MoC voted for the final version here). They need to hear that you know how they voted, and that you are NOT happy: Call your MoC and tell them you’re angry they voted for the Trump Tax Scam, and remind them that this is a vote that will follow them for the rest of their career.

Sample Call Script

Caller: Hello! My name is ___ and I’m calling from [part of state]. I am extremely disappointed that [Congressman / Senator] ___ voted for the tax bill. It is a giveaway to the wealthy and corporations paid for by cutting health care coverage and raising taxes on the middle class. It’s a disgrace that [Congressman / Senator] joined nearly all of [her / his] colleagues in voting for it.

Staffer:. Thank you so much for calling. Unfortunately, the [Congressman / Senator] disagrees with you on this issue. She/he felt that this was the time for tax reform that would grow our economy, simplify the tax code, and make our businesses more productive and competitive.

Caller: This scam of a bill doesn’t accomplish any of those goals—it just makes our tax code even more slanted toward the wealthy and corporations, at the expense of families that need health insurance or itemize their taxes. I also want the [Congressman / Senator] to know that I expect [her / him] to oppose the destructive Trump agenda in the new year. [She / he] must make up for this vote by opposing cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and other programs that people rely on.

Staffer: I’ll pass along your thoughts to the [Congressman / Senator].

Caller: Yes please do, and please take down my contact information so you can let me know what the Senator decides to do in the new year.
