Daily Updates Will Show How the Trump-GOP Tax Law Enriches Corporations But Did Little for Workers or the Economy
Americans for Tax Fairness today launched “12 Days of Tax Scam,” a daily update to highlight how the Trump-GOP tax cuts, which were enacted two years ago this month, have been a gift for the wealthy and corporations but a lump of coal for workers and the overall economy.
The “12 Days of Tax Scam” campaign will feature daily news releases and social media graphics and posts contrasting the many GOP promises that tax cuts would boost the economy with actual data showing how it’s fallen far short.
