RESULTS advocates for tax policies that are grounded in equity and help people move out of poverty. This includes tools like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), a refundable federal income tax credit for low-income working individuals and families.
Last night the Senate passed their 2018 budget resolution, which paves the way for $1.5 trillion in unpaid-for tax cuts that benefit millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations.
Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed a budget resolution that cuts core anti-poverty programs – SNAP (formerly Food Stamps), Medicaid, and the EITC for working families – while fast-tracking massive tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations. Congressional leaders want to pass a final budget by the end of the month. With the Senate on recess next week and the House the week after, we need to tell them loud and clear that voters oppose cutting basic assistance to pay for tax cuts for the rich.
Tomorrow in Washington, the House of Representatives will vote on their proposed FY 2018 budget resolution. In this proposal, the House wants to enact huge tax cuts that benefit the wealthy and big corporations and cut basic assistance like SNAP (formerly Food Stamps), Medicaid, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), to pay for these tax breaks for the wealthy, including “reconciliation instructions” that would fast track cuts to these programs.
A few hours ago, Senate Budget Committee leaders released their proposed 2018 budget. Unfortunately, this blueprint paves the way for trillions in deficit-increasing tax cuts that mostly benefit millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations — and down the line, the resulting deficits will be used by policymakers to demand cuts to basic assistance programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), education, and infrastructure. With the Senate Budget Committee considering this proposal next week (and the House voting on their budget next Thursday), we need to speak out!
Late last week, President Donald Trump released his tax reform plan to the American public. The tax cuts in the president’s plan disproportionately benefit wealthy Americans and large corporations. When the United States has an increasing wealth gap and an increasing racial wealth gap, the last thing we should be focusing on is giving tax breaks to the wealthy.
Today Congress made permanent critical provisions of pro-work tax credits that lift millions of Americans out of poverty every year.
RESULTS Expert on Poverty Maxine Thomas published an op-ed in The Hill about how tax credits like The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) help her family each year.
