5 Minute Action for Saturday, 3/25: Non-Negotiable: Require Trump to Release His Taxes Or No Tax Reform

The power has shifted and it’s time to take advantage of that.

After Trump’s failure to make the deal on his terrible healthcare plan, he says his next priority is tax reform. How can he lead on an issue for which he is unwilling to be more transparent, while also refusing to comply with ethics standards that are the norm for a president? It’s impossible.

Trump may begin reaching out to democrats to bring them into the tent for the tax reform effort. We believe all members of Congress need to establish one non-negotiable with Trump:  Release your tax returns or no discussion on tax reform.

TODAY’s 5 Minute Action:

Step 1:  Get used to saying and writing:  “Art of the Deal:  No Trump Tax Returns, No Trump Tax Reform”. Let’s start with a personal Facebook post and a fax to the House Ways and Means Committee:

  • Facebook:  Post the message on your Facebook page
  • Fax:  Use a free fax service and send a message to the House Ways and Means committee member from your state. 
    • Find your member(s) by clicking here:  https://waysandmeans.house.gov/committee-members/
    • Then fax them by clicking here – House. Script:  “I am (name) from (zip). Tell Trump it’s the Art of the Deal:  No Trump Tax Returns, No Trump Tax Reform. I expect you to stand firm on this.”  You will receive an email to confirm this is a valid fax – be sure to confirm!

BREATHE AND STEP FORWARD!
