ADA Taking Action on Tax Fairness
ADA agrees with the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) that the best way to help the middle class, grow the economy, and reduce our deficit is to create jobs. Check out the CPC's co-chair, Rep. Keith Ellison's article "Fiscal Cliff Means the Rich Need to Step Up" featured in USA Today.
Read below to see some examples of how ADA is organizing locally around these issues, and contact ADA National Field Director, Rebecca Gomer, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to get involved.

Iowans for Tax Fairness - Caroling for Tax Fairness
Working Families Win (WFW) Iowa has teamed up with Progress Iowa in launching "Iowans for Tax Fairness". Representing both labor and activist groups, this new coalition is calling on Iowa’s Members of Congress to end tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans.
Iowans for Tax Fairness and WFW Iowa have already hosted their first two events during the national day of action on December 1. Activists spent Saturday “Caroling for tax fairness” outside of the offices of Rep. Tom Latham and Senator Chuck Grassley. Upcoming actions will include the delivery of petition signatures from constituents. Watch carolers sing 'Vote for Income Tax Equality' to Rep. Tom Latham.
- Voters were clear that they don't want cuts in Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid, but they do want the rich to pay their fair share. Read “The GOP and Austerity Autopilot (a.k.a. the Fiscal Cliff)” to learn why President Obama’s opening "fiscal cliff" offer is exactly what everyone should have expected.
