Have you read the headlines from the other Washington? The Trump administration and allies in Congress have plans to attack access to healthcare, protections for clean air and clean water, roll back workers rights, and give big tax breaks to powerful special interests at the cost of our kids and communities.
The best way to protect our communities is to go all in for our Washington and to make sure lawmakers in Olympia, who return to the capitol today, take a different path. We can create great schools and protect our thriving communities, but only if we clean up our tax code.
Tell your legislators to clean up our tax code by eliminating wasteful tax breaks, making polluters pay, and closing the tax break on the sale of stocks and bonds that only benefits the wealthiest households.
Washington is a great place to live, work, and raise a family and we can’t let extremists in DC drag us backward. We can lead the nation in education, health care, and a prosperous economy. But you can’t get something for nothing. We all need to do our part to invest in the foundations that benefit all of us. Right now, we have the most upside down tax code in the nation -- working families pay a rate up to 7 times higher than the richest households. That’s because powerful special interests have manipulated our tax code to enrich themselves while leaving the rest of us to pick up the tab.
If we clean up the tax code by eliminating wasteful tax breaks, including the tax break wealthy households get on the sale of stocks and bonds, we can have the resources to invest in the foundations of a thriving community, like excellent schools, good roads and parks, and affordable housing and healthcare. With all that is happening in the other Washington we can’t afford not to.
Contact your legislators today and tell them to clean up the tax code.
