Both Moms Rising and Americans for Tax Reform help you tell your Congressfolk to repeal the 2017 "tax scam." The Moms Rising tool also helps you tell your Congressfolk to strengthen the Earned Income Tax Credit (or EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (or CTC), since these are tax credits that actually help working families make ends meet, or even get ahead. Unlike all those corporate tax loopholes Congress loves waiting until the end of the year to extend because they know they're too unpopular to extend at any other time! But the 2017 tax "reform" -- which more and more Americans, however accurately, now regard as a "tax scam" because they're not getting as much back at tax time as they did in previous years -- not only gave us near-trillion-dollar deficits, but handed out welfare to corporations and rich folks. They say the wealth will trickle down to us "little folks"; I say something's trickling down, but it sure ain't wealth.
Meanwhile, CREDO helps you tell your Congressfolk to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act already. Yup, they let it expire again, just like they did in 2012, but at least then they got hung up over stupid crap; this time, they let it expire because, you know, why bother governing when you could be posturing? The Violence Against Women Act has done America a great deal of good -- before Congress passed it in 1994, domestic violence survivors generally thought they were at fault for what happened to them, and most Americans agreed; now, at least, most folks will keep their victim-blaming to themselves, and blame the attackers for taking out their insecurities on their partners. This is no small thing, helped by the many programs (including the National Domestic Violence Hotline) VAWA has created. But we've got more work to do, and the Violence Against Women Act helps us do that work, so let's get to it.
Finally, you've heard of "patent trolls," who patent relatively common pieces of software and then sue anyone who uses that relatively common piece of software as part of a considerably more innovative product, thus cowing such actual innovators into giving them money for not actually doing any work. Naturally, the U.S. Patent Office -- in the Administration of the President who has, more than any other American, excelled at conning folks into giving him money for not doing any work -- wants to make it even easier for patent trolls to operate. Such is our Administration's blind hatred for regulations, particularly regulations that actually help good Americans. So the Electronic Frontier Foundation helps you tell our Patent Office to apply, not narrow, our Supreme Court's decision in Alice v. CLS Bank, which held that you can't just patent any old thing because you can now do it on a computer.
