Click here for bill information > Republican Leaders unveiled a budget plan today in which “once again rushed to the rescue of the 1 % percent by insisting that millionaire$ should not have to pay one penny in taxes, according to AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Instead, the House Republican proposal would cut benefits for jobless workers, cut pay for public employees, cut preventive health services, reduce premium assistance for low- and middle-income individuals buying health insurance, and raise premiums for many Medicare beneficiaries. House Republicans obviously have more sympathy for millionaire$ than for the jobless. AFGE President John Gage also blasted the Republicans leaders” Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act, introduced by House Speaker John Boehner. This is just another attack on the 99% on behalf of their good friends—the 1%. Republicans are targeting a small segment of people who make $30,000 to $70,000 a year, rather than asking their millionaire and billionaire supporters to pay a little more.

It’s not right, and the American people should be outraged. Cong. Stephen Fincher(R)(upper right), District#8-Tennessee. You can contact your Congressman below.
