Oppose Trump’s Tax Plan Giveaway to the Rich

Target: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin

Goal: Oppose Trump tax plan that threatens the middle class and provides cuts for the wealthy.

The Trump administration recently outlined its new tax plan, claiming that the approach will provide help to ordinary taxpayers and middle class households, while wealthier citizens continue to pay taxes similar to what they currently pay. However, a closer look shows that Trump’s tax plan will mainly benefit the very rich while doing nothing for the middle class.

Steven Mnuchin, Trump’s Treasury Secretary, stated, “Effectively, the effective tax rate will not be a reduction for the rich. This is really about a middle-income tax cut.” However, those who have reviewed the approach say that the wealthiest Americans would benefit the most from the Trump tax plan. A rich taxpayer would save roughly 14.1% of their income with the new plan, while middle-income payers would save roughly 1.5%.

The Trump administration has repeatedly shown that its concern and loyalty lie with big business and the wealthiest Americans, rather than with the typical taxpayer. This tax plan is more of the same from the Trump White House. Add your name to the petition to oppose this plan that further threatens the diminishing middle class in the United States.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Mnuchin,

Recently, you publicly pitched and supported the Trump administration’s proposed tax plan. More specifically, you claimed that the plan would provide tax cuts largely for Americans in the middle-income bracket and would not function as a reduction for the wealthiest Americans. However, tax experts who have taken a closer look at the proposed approach have determined that the opposite is true: Trump’s plan would provide a significant tax break for wealthy Americans, and any reduced rate for the middle-class would be uneven.

This administration has so far failed to live up to promises that Donald Trump made on the campaign trail about helping middle-and low-income Americans. This tax plan further ignores the struggles of the diminishing middle class in the United States and provides further unnecessary tax breaks to those who make more than enough money to live on.

I urge you in your position as Treasury Secretary to rework this tax plan so that it does what you falsely claimed it did: provide relief for the American households that need it most, rather than providing further benefit to the 1% at the expense of the middle class.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I feel sorry for those billionaires who can only afford 2,000,000 square foot homes and maybe just one or two 747’s in their personal fleet. When will we stop oppressing the megarich with these silly taxes that let us live in a modern civilization?
