On behalf of the 2.5 million union members, retirees, and families of the New York State AFL-CIO, I write to urge you to reject any tax reform legislation that emerges from conference committee that cuts taxes for the wealthy on the backs of hardworking New Yorkers.
The job-killing tax plans passed by the House and Senate in the last few weeks, are nothing short of a disaster for working families, particularly the New Yorkers you represent. We simply cannot afford to let the proposals embodied in the misleadingly titled “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” become law. Here’s just some of the ways Republican plans get it wrong:
The Republican tax plan would make working people pay the price for wasteful tax giveaways by sending our jobs overseas, killing jobs in infrastructure and education, raising our taxes, increasing the number of uninsured, and cutting the essential public services we depend on.
Thank you for your consideration. Should you need additional information or have any questions, please contact Ryan Delgado, New York State AFL-CIO Political Director, at (518) 436-8516 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
