It's time for Congress to restore some fairness to the tax code. As early as next week, Congress will start to vote on whether to end — or extend — the Bush-era tax cuts for the richest two percent.
Extending the Bush-era tax cuts on income up to $250,000 per couple as President Obama has proposed would give 98 percent of Americans their full tax cuts next year. And the wealthiest two percent would still receive tax breaks on their first $250,000! We simply can't afford to give even more tax breaks to those who need them least when so many women and families are struggling just to make ends meet.
Call your Members of Congress at 1-888-744-9958 and tell them that it's time for the richest Americans to pay their fair share: we need to end the Bush tax cuts on income over $250,000.
Ending the Bush-era tax cuts on income above $250,000 would save about $1 trillion over the next ten years — funding that's urgently needed to protect programs like child care, Pell Grants, Head Start, Medicaid, and Title X family planning services. It's time to stop trying to balance the budget on the backs of women and families. The richest Americans need to start paying their fair share of taxes.
