Remember when Mitch McConnell said he'd have a vote on the Senate tax "reform" plan after Thanksgiving? Well, it's now after Thanksgiving, so it's time to call your Senators and tell them to reject it. After all the PR hits the Trump tax plan has been getting lately, that shouldn't be a heavy lift, but Republican Senators sure sound like they're more concerned about their big donors abandoning them than they are of doing evil, which sure is a damn shame. But you don't need to feel stumped about what to say to your Senators, because you have no shortage of criticisms -- corporations won't create jobs with their tax cut but will just shovel it to their executives and shareholders; the meager income tax cuts for working families won't offset the loss of tax credits (deductions for state, local, and property taxes) the plan would repeal; those meager income tax cuts will expire in 10 years but the corporate tax cut will be permanent; the House version, at least, would make corporate "offshoring" of profits a million times worse; and, seriously, why do rich folks and corporations deserve more tax cuts?
Meanwhile, the net neutrality repeal plan FCC Chair Ajit Pai has advanced is, somehow, even worse than we imagined -- it would not only end net neutrality protections so that corporations, and not you, could dictate to you where you go on the internet, it would expressly permit ISPs to discriminate against websites by blocking them or slowing their delivery to your computer, and it would foment the nefarious practice of paid prioritization, whereby some sites pay to get delivered more quickly to your computing device. Plus, it would prevent states from enacting their own net neutrality laws! Your Trump Administration "conservatives," ladies and gentlemen! So, long story short, Mr. Pai's net neutrality proposal is an even more disgusting piece of un-American filth than the Trump tax "reform" plan. Maybe good folks will clog up their ISP's phone lines when they can't go where they want on the internet anymore, but until then, both Save the Net from Trump and Battle for the Net help you tell your Congressfolk to stand up to Mr. Pai's plan to ruin the internet.
