Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to pass a windfall profits tax, pass the End Hedge Fund Control of American Homes Act, and reject any further IRS funding cuts. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your Congressfolk's phone numbers and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
Demand Progress helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass a windfall corporate profits tax. So that corporations don’t just jack up prices on us whenever they feel like! Because that’s what they’ve been doing! Yes, supply chain issues did help inflation go up in 2021, but when you see high inflation and record corporate profits at the same time, then you know that corporate greed is the main driver behind our recent high inflation. That’s why we call it greedflation! We tax a lot of the wrong things in America; taxing corporations for their greed would be one of the right things.
Demand Progress also helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass the End Hedge Fund Control of American Homes Act. Because that would literally be a good thing to do! Hedge fund buy up properties like mad in America, which means a) working families can’t buy as many houses, because they can’t exactly outbid hedge funds and b) rents go up into the stratosphere, because that’s what makes them money! It’s like hedge funds ruin everything in America. Maybe we should outlaw them! They’re banksters, after all! But if we’re not going to outlaw them, we should at least make sure they don’t hurt us, and passing this bill would help us do that.
Finally, Patriotic Millionaires helps you tell your Congressfolk to reject any further proposed cuts to IRS funding. It’s not just about IRS funding hikes collecting at least $160 million more from rich folks – it’s also about our IRS answering three million more phone calls in 2023 than in 2022, and it’s also about wait times for phone calls going down from 28 minutes on average to three. That’s what you get when you properly fund government – you get service. And by making this this their line in the sand, Republicans only seem even more objectively anti-service.
