Take Action: End Bush tax breaks for rich, Create jobs for a stronger America
It’s time to stop giving millionaires and billionaires a free pass at the expense of middle-class families.
Since President Bush launched his tax breaks for the ultra-wealthy a decade ago, the richest of the rich have socked away billions of dollars while our economy and basic infrastructure have crumbled, setting America behind our competitors for the first time since World War II.
But we can fix our roads and bridges, lead the global green economy, and reinvest in the human capital that serves as the backbone of America like our teachers, small business owners and young leaders.
Instead of handing away billions of dollars to the richest Americans, let’s use this money to create good jobs for all Americans.
Ending the Bush tax breaks for the wealthiest few would bring an estimated $1.5 trillion back into our economy, money that can be used to create new jobs protecting our drinking water, making our highways and bridges safe again, and upgrading to energy sources that won’t pollute our air and make our kids sick.
Tell President Obama and your elected officials that it’s time to end Bush’s tax breaks for the wealthy and to instead put Americans back to work making our country stronger, healthier, and more competitive
