Breaking: McCain To Support Trump Tax Scam (and How You Can Help)

Senator John McCain has announced intentions to vote in support of the Trump Tax Scam, which repeals the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate and raises taxes on 50% of Americans. Here’s what you can do right now to help.



Trump Tax Scam
News broke on Thursday morning that Senator John McCain (R-AZ) intends to vote in favor of the Tax Reform bill (dubbed affectionately the “Trump Tax Scam”) which will come before the Senate by the end of this week after having cleared the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate Budget Committee earlier this week. His support will likely put together the coalition necessary to pass the bill or require a tie-breaker vote from the sitting Vice President, Mike Pence.

This bill will strip millions of health insurance, make taxes higher for 50% of Americans, and will require drastic cuts to Medicaid. It’s harmful to LGBT people and cuts AIDS program funding, and makes student loans more expensive and difficult to pay off. This must not pass.
