Tell Congress: End the Bush Tax Cuts for the Wealthiest 2%

    1. Sponsored by

      People For the American Way

The fiscal showdown is under way.

Thanks to major wins at the ballot for the presidency and the Senate, progressives are in a strong position to get a deal that reflects Americans’ core values. That means protecting the social safety net and the vital programs Americans depend on -- and central to that is requiring the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share by letting the Bush tax cuts expire for the richest 2%.

Any fiscal deal must:
- Create Jobs
- Stop devastating budget cuts
- Protect low-income social services.
- Save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
- Require the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share.

The President and congressional leaders need our support to hold fast to this position, particularly ending the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2%. Republicans need to be told to do what’s right for the country. Take action so support these measures.
