2018 Midterm Accountability Toolkit

The three graphic images below are customized for Sen. Dean Heller and U.S. Representatives in more than 30 congressional districts.

Talking Points:

  1. Unfair: The Trump-GOP tax plan gives the vast majority of the tax cuts to the wealthy, rich CEOs and big corporations, not to working families, who are left to pick up the tab yet again. 83% of the tax cuts are going to the richest 1% once the law is fully implemented, including to billionaires like Trump.
  2. Unhealthy Tradeoff: How does the Republican-controlled Congress plan to pay for their $2 trillion tax cut for the wealthy and big corporations? By cutting Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and the Affordable Care Act. Drug companies and health insurers get to pad their profits with big tax cuts, paid for by higher healthcare premiums for working families, while eight million people will lose healthcare coverage.
  3. Rigged System: Drug companies, big banks, Wall Street billionaires and their lobbyists have rigged the tax system like they’ve rigged the economy. Their tax breaks are going to wealthy CEOs while millions of families are struggling to get by. The tax rules need to be rewritten to make the economy work for everyone, not just the wealthy few.
  4. Broken Promises: Trump promised that corporations would use their big tax cuts to give working families a $4,000 pay raise. He said they would make “massive investments” and stop outsourcing jobs. None of that is happening. Corporate CEOs are not sharing their tax breaks with workers. Wages are stagnant. Corporations are using their tax cuts to buy back their own stock, which lines the pockets of wealthy CEOs and shareholders. It does not benefit workers.

Instead of strengthening and protecting working family priorities such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and education, Rep. [Last Name] first voted to take healthcare away from 22 MILLION Americans by trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Then he gave a tax cut costing $2 TRILLION that mostly benefits the rich and big corporations. Then he voted to give EVEN MORE tax breaks favoring the rich that cost $3 TRILLION.

These votes show Rep. [Last Name] does not stand with us. Shame on [her/him]!
