MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin — On Tax Day, Tuesday, April 17, activists in Milwaukee will host a rally to call on Congress to repeal the TrumpTax—a bill that has been disastrous for Wisconsin’s working families.
In the days leading up to Tax Day, over 100 events are taking place across the country to conclude the nationwide Repeal the TrumpTax, which shed light on the devastating repercussions of Republican tax breaks for millionaires, billionaires and wealthy corporations at the expense of working families.
The fallout from the TrumpTax will be devastating, with The Tax Policy Center finding that 92 million middle-income families across America will pay more in taxes, while the richest 0.1 percent will get a nearly $150,000 tax break. Moreover, millions of Americans will see a 10 percent increase in health insurance premiums and our commitment to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will be undermined.
Tuesday’s event is free and open to the public.
