Fill Congress' Voicemail Box: Tax Plan Would Increase Middle Class Taxes

Stop Tax PlanDecember 15, 2017 - The tax plan currently before Congress will raise taxes on Flight Attendants and working families to cut taxes for the super rich and give corporations new incentives to send more U.S. jobs overseas. Republicans in Congress have reached a deal on the tax plan. The House and Senate will have to vote one final time before the bill can pass. This is our last chance to stop this harmful bill that gives more cuts to corporations while raising middle class taxes and jeopardizing healthcare for millions

How does the GOP Tax plan hurt Flight Attendants and families?

  • Removes employee business expense deductions. If it passes, Flight Attendants will not be able to deduct any flight crew expenses anymore, including uniforms, union dues, per diem for every city where you overnight – everything. This could result in Flight Attendants paying thousands of dollars more in taxes. 
  • Gives most of the tax cuts to the richest 1%.
  • Raises taxes on 87 million middle-class families by 2027 to pay for tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations.
  • Makes corporate tax cuts permanent, but makes tax cuts for individuals and families temporary.
  • Kills American jobs by encouraging outsourcing and contingent pay (profit sharing in lieu of base pay) for jobs that remain.
  • Mandates automatic Medicare cuts of at least $25 billion in 2018 and $400 billion over 10 years.
  • Pays for corporate tax cuts by raising health care premiums and leaving millions of families without health coverage.

We cannot allow tax cuts for the wealthy to harm millions of working families. AFA, CWA and our allies are fighting back against this massive transfer of dollars from working families to the richest 1 percent. In order to win, we need you to call.
