KEEP CALLING ABOUT THE TAX PLAN:
Senate has now passed the Republican tax plan that will give tax breaks to corporations and the wealthiest 1% while raising
taxes for hard working middle-class families. The Senate bill also repeals Obamacare's individual mandate, raising health
insurance costs for millions of Americans and increasing the deficit by trillions.
surprisingly, Ohio Senator Rob Portman voted for the Republican plan. Please keep up the pressure on
Sen. Portman, and tell
him you deplore his vote on the Senate tax bill and that, as a constituent, you are holding him accountable. Numbers to call: DC office: 202-224-3353; Cleveland office: 216-522-7095.
And please also call Sherrod Brown and thank him for his strong
fight AGAINST the tax bill and his NO vote! DC office: 202-224-2315; Cleveland office: 216-522-7272.
