This week we are focusing on something that is top of mind for a lot of Americans right now -- taxes!
Trump is under increasing pressure to release his tax returns, which would help all-of-us get valuable insight into his business dealings, possible debts and ties with foreign governments. We are closely monitoring several bills introduced by Congressional Democrats and in the states and will be asking you to act on those when the time is right.
For now, we’re asking you to join a Tax March on Saturday, April 15th. Why march? Well, we couldn’t have said it better than the organizers of the Tax March:
President Trump is the first president or major-party presidential candidate in four decades to refuse to release his tax returns to the public. We march to demand that the president release his returns, as he has repeatedly promised, but failed, to do. We march because it is in the best interest of the American people to know what financial entanglements and conflicts of interest our leaders have. Because we need to know if the president is personally profiting from the policies he is proposing. And because we want know if he has contributed his fair share of taxes. We march because we will not stand by while the rich and the powerful govern this country guided only by their personal best interests, and not the best interests of the American people as a whole.
We must continue to show that all-of-us are paying attention.
1. Go to the Tax March website to read their principles, sign up for a local march. Tell your friends to sign up, too.
2. March on the 15th, and share photos on social media @1beautifulwall #WallofUs
3. If going to the tax march is too taxing on your schedule, sign this White House petition. It already broke the record for most signatures on a White House petition, so let's pile on!
