Stop the GOP Tax Bill
December 10, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
In 1773 Boston protested unfair taxation without representation. Today our government is refusing to represent us. While people are struggling to meet basic needs, our government is putting more money in the hands of those who need it least.
We will gather on Sunday, December 10th to march from the Boston Common to Boston Harbor as we fight for all those who will suffer under the GOP’s tax plan.
There is time to beat this. Let’s stand together and send a message that we aren’t ready to back down.
We are young people in the Boston area who didn’t want to see this tax plan go unopposed, even in Massachusetts. To reach out, please contact us at BOSteaparty2017@gmail.com
This is a protest against the H.R.1 GOP tax bill that is close to being passed officially in the House and Senate. We will march from the Boston Common to the Boston Harbor, where we will hear from some speakers about who this bill will most impact.
The GOP tax bill will make it even harder for the poor and middle class to survive in the U.S.: by making health care even more expensive, by increasing the tax rate for students, by making it impossible for some families to move for better jobs, by penalizing people whose homes experience fires or floods, and countless other impacts. Meanwhile, our wealth is being given to the rich, and to corporations who make out with fewer and fewer limitations to outsourcing jobs, cutting costs, and hurting the people of the U.S. This is the truth of this bill.
December 16th is likely the last day the GOP will be able to ram this bill through. There is time to beat this. While our own elected officials here in MA are voting against this bill, together we can send a strong message to the rest of the country that this disastrous tax bill can be stopped. In doing so, we can strengthen our community to keep fighting these injustices.
Logistics such as the march route, speakers, etc are being worked on, and will be posted closer to Sunday. Please let us know if you have any specific concerns or suggestions.
