Target: President-Elect Donald Trump
Goal: Demand Donald Trump rescind unfair, unbalanced deal with United Technologies.
Donald Trump has signed a deal with United Technologies that entitles them to a tax cut, a direct contradiction to his demands that the company pay its taxes months earlier. This will enable the company to outsource jobs to other countries just to save money, as this tax cut will excuse them from paying the tax expected of companies that outsource jobs and build factories in other countries. This, in turn, will endanger the job security of millions of American workers, as well as force the working-class to pay higher taxes.
What Trump has done is essentially support taking money from the pockets and food from the mouths of the working class so that a company that is in no financial trouble can put a little more in their own pockets. Not only is this incredibly unfair to the working class, it shows that Trump cannot be counted on to keep his promises. It is yet more proof that he merely tells people what they want to hear and does not have the country’s best interests at heart.
United Technologies does not need the extra money such a tax cut would award them, and Donald Trump should not renege on his promise to make them along with other larger companies “pay their damn taxes.” Sign this petition to demand Trump rescind this deal with United Technologies and make it pay its taxes, as he promised he would.
Dear President-Elect Trump,
You recently broke one of your campaign’s key promises to make companies such as United Technologies “pay a damn tax” by allowing them a generous tax cut, allowing them to outsource as many jobs as they like without paying a cent. This will cost many American workers their jobs and force them to pay higher taxes to benefit a company that does not need the extra money. United Technologies is far from broke, and it will not harm them to pay the taxes you promised to make them pay.
You made a major promise in your campaign, and it is not right to break it simply to give a break to a company that does not need one. Rescind your deal with United Technologies. Do not give it a tax cut, demand it pays its taxes. United Technologies does not need the assistance, but the working class does. Do not break your initial promises to them if you truly wish to “make America great again.”
[Your Name Here]
