Tell Congress to Stand up for Women and the Middle Class!

On December 31, 2012, billions of dollars in tax cuts are set to expire, which would lead to devastating tax increases on the middle class. If middle class tax cuts are not extended, the average young person will see their taxes rise by an average of $2000.00 next year. Tell House Speaker John Boehner not to hold the middle class tax cuts hostage.

The Senate has already passed a tax cut for the middle class that would prevent taxes from rising on 99.5% of 18-34-year-olds. However, Speaker Boehner refuses to allow a vote on the bill. House Republicans are threatening to sacrifice the financial security of nearly every American—and risk pushing the country back into recession—in order to protect tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires.

Don’t allow the House to hold the middle class hostage! Urge Speaker Boehner to allow a vote on the middle class tax cuts. There is currently a discharge petition in the House that would force a vote on this crucial legislation. To win, the petition will need signatures from at least 218 House members. Right now, 182 Representatives have signed the petition. Please contact your Representative and ask them to sign the discharge petition immediately.
