GOP Screws America: Welcome to the most regressive and repulsive tax bill to ever come out of the US Congress.

In the dead of night Saturday (at 1:36am, specifically), the Senate GOP passed the most regressive and repulsive tax bill to ever come out of the US Congress. Under the guise of “tax reform” the Republicans in the Senate (including Florida’s own Marco Rubio) approved a plan that increases our national debt by at least $1.5 trillion, raises the cost of college for middle-class Americans, and adds 13 million people to the ranks of the uninsured. All to cut taxes on corporations and allow the children of the wealthy to inherit billions tax-free.

Indivisible Gainesville’s response to Ted Yoho’s Tax Reform Op-Ed, November 14th Gainesville Sun

We need men like Judge Moore in the Senate to advance the conservative policies America sent us here to enact…I am proud to endorse Judge Moore and look forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with him to fight for America, and against the failed status quo of Washington.”

I know what you’re thinking: But that was September. This was before the child molestation accusations. True. But if we factor in what Yoho surely knew about Roy Moore, his endorsement is still alarming.   Read more

Myth vs Fact: Trump’s Tax Proposal

Fond of giving himself high marks for nearly everything, President Trump receives low marks for his recent tax plan. When he introduced the Unified Framework for Fixing our Broken Tax Code in a speech on September 27, 2017, he made several statements about it that are easily refuted. Why would he lie so blatantly while coming out of the gate on such an important part of his agenda? Read more

What Trump Did Last Week to Obamacare

Democrats have been negotiating with Republicans on a bipartisan “stabilization bill” that would include a guarantee that CSR payments continue. But merely guaranteeing those payments is not enough. Ask your MoCs to ensure that the bipartisan bill continues protections for people enrolled in association health plans, that short-term plans stay truly short-term, and that CSR payments continue.
