We are U.S. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon and Nicole Gill of Tax March, Ask us anything about the tax scam!
House and Senate Republicans are moving to negotiate their two versions of the tax bill into a final tax bill this week. These are largely unpopular bills that would give huge tax breaks to the corporations and well-connected at the expense of the middle class. That includes increasing the deficit by over $1.5 trillion, forcing $25 billion in cuts to Medicare next year alone, and raising taxes on people with high medical costs and student loan bills.

u/taxmarchama, Nicole Gill, executive director of Tax March, a member of Not One Penny a coalition of progressive groups and grassroots organizers fighting for not one penny in tax cuts for millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations.
Take action! Join events across the country, call your elected official, schedule a visit to your district office, write a letter to your local newspaper, and talk to your loved ones about the impact of this bill on your family.
Update: 12:18 PM ET, thanks everyone! Keep up the fight. Senator Ron Wyden and Nicole Gill signing off.
