KEEP CALLING ABOUT THE TAX PLAN:

The 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. 
Not 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.
