Yesterday, Republicans in the Senate rejected the Buffett Rule—a common sense measure that would make sure millionaires and billionaires like Warren Buffett pay their fair share of taxes.
Instead of making sure we have resources to invest in job creation, repairs to our roads, and our children’s education, Republicans want to funnel more money into millionaires’ already booming bank accounts.
It’s wrong to ask middle class and working families to pay more of their income in taxes than millionaires. If you agree, click here to stand with me in support of tax fairness.
Just what exactly is at stake when it comes to tax fairness? Let me put it into perspective. If just a single millionaire paid their fair share, it could generate up to $32 million to prevent over 300 teachers from getting laid off.
Our nation can either support tax fairness for all Americans or keep padding the bank accounts of the richest 1 percent. In my opinion, it’s an easy choice.
P.S. Billionaire Warren Buffett and many wealthy Americans pay a lower tax rate than middle-class families do. That’s just not fair. Click here and stand with me in support of tax fairness.
