Tell Arkansas Lawmakers To Vote No on Congressional Tax Plans
Sign the petition to tell Arkansas lawmakers to "SAY NO!" to the special favors for the wealthy and powerful in proposed tax legislation. Both the US House and Senate are in a hurry to pass major tax changes before the end of the year. We need your help to tell Arkansas lawmakers to "Say No!" These proposals hurt most Arkansans. They balloon the deficit. And they fatten the pockets of special interest groups. Arkansas’ congressional delegation could play a pivotal role in stopping these bad ideas. The House and Senate bills differ in some ways, but they have several bad ideas in common: These bills will take money from low income families and give it to the rich and powerful. Most of the benefits go to the wealthy and our most profitable corporations. While the powerful benefit, low- and middle-income families will bear most of the costs. The bills will force budget cuts in healthcare, education, nutrition, job training, and other programs. Any tax proposal should focus on helping middle and low income families. We should be closing income inequality, but this proposal makes it worse! These tax cut bills will increase our deficit by at least $1.5 TRILLION. We should not add to the debt we are giving future generations to pay for tax cuts we don't need. Congress should pay for tax reform with a balanced budget. These bills promise the false hope that trickle down economics actually work. Economic growth happens when we invest in working families. Not by giving special favors to our wealthiest people. Those who support the bills say that low and middle income families will see tax relief. Low and middle-class families might see temporary tax relief under this plan. But, the budget cuts that will be proposed to help pay for the tax favors will raise the cost of living for working families. And remember, the vast majority of benefits go to the wealthiest, most powerful DC players. The goal of this tax package is clear -- to give the most powerful political groups and insiders big tax favors. Worse, they pay for it by borrowing against our future and cutting services for working families. Join us in calling on our members of Congress to reject these bad tax and budget plans. They should look for bipartisan solutions that make our tax code more fair and simple WHILE protecting the programs many hard-working Arkansas families depend on. We need lawmakers to do what's right for ALL Arkansans, not just our top 1%.
Petition to Donald Trump, Department of Energy
Keep $7500 Federal Credit for Electric Car Purchase
Keep $7500 federal credit for electric car purchases so it acts as an incentive for future electric car buyers as global warming gets worse every day. Since electric cars can be expensive, this tax deduction will allow more consumers to purchase electric/plug-in hybrid vehicles. When buying an electric vehicle (EV), the government provides you $7500 to deduct the price of the car. With the current administration, this discount may disappear. The low cost of gasoline cars is what allows many to buy them so frequently. The same could be said with electric vehicles if this tax credit is kept. For all those EV owners (Tesla, Chevrolet, Nissan, BMW, Toyota...) and future EV owners, this is your chance to persuade the current US Government to keep the tax credit allowing you to spend less money when buying electric vehicles.
Petition to President Trump and Congress
Demand that Congress keep the Exemption Deduction for middle income taxpayers.
If middle income taxpayers are supposed to benefit from the new tax law why does President Trump and Congress propose to eliminate a deduction that only benefits the middle income and lower income taxpayers. The exemption deduction is limited for married taxpayers with taxable income over $ 313,800, so this deduction only benefits the low to middle income taxpayer. If President Trump really wants to help middle class taxpayers this deduction should be increased, not eliminated. In other words, this is a tax increase for middle income taxpayers when this deduction is eliminated. The 10% tax bracket should be expanded to cover the first $50,000 of taxable income. This again will provide real middle class tax relief.
Petition to U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives
Tell Congress to Support EV Tax Credit
Congress is proposing in H.R. 1 to eliminate the federal tax credit for electric vehicles at the end of 2017. Prematurely ending this tax credit will threaten hundreds of thousands of American jobs, weaken American technology leadership, and stifle innovation and customer choice. We urge you to say NO to the repeal of the federal tax credit for electric vehicles.
Petition to U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, President of the United States
Guarantee that the Tax Bill benefits ordinary Americans Most !
The current proposals for the Tax Bill significantly increase the national debt by over 1.5 Trillion dollars, which will be a obligation borne by taxpayers. Most of the provisions of the Tax Bill are given to the wealthy and large corporations, with the hope that benefits will trickle down to ordinary Americans as increased jobs, salaries, and economic investment and growth. However, this hope is not a guarantee. If the American taxpayers are to be the risk takers, in this bill, then the Tax Bill needs to contain provisions to help guarantee this bill provides benefits to ordinary Americans. This can be fixed with simple changes we are proposing in the bill. Specifically we are proposing that: (1) if a company or wealthy individual wants to take advantage of the lower tax rates offered, then 50% of the tax savings, must go to a the employees in the the lower 80% of the company payroll; and (2) an additional 30% of the tax savings must go to capital investments by purchasing products made entirely in the United States of America - otherwise they pay the existing 2016 tax rates.
