FW: Fighting tooth and nail

I'm fighting tooth and nail to defeat the new Republican tax scam making its way through Congress.

Hi, Eddie—I just wanted to make sure you saw my important message from the other day.

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm fighting tooth and nail to defeat the new Republican tax scam making its way through Congress.

I'm fighting this because the Republican tax scam could be another nail in the coffin for America's middle class. It's a 1.5-trillion-dollar tax giveaway—the biggest tax giveaway to giant corporations in modern history. It's a bill so insulting to working families that it actually gives Wells Fargo—the company that created millions of fake accounts to cheat its customers—the largest tax break of all.

Here's the problem: I can't stop this Republican tax scam by myself. My fellow Democrats in Congress and I can't stop the Republicans by ourselves either—we just don't have the votes.

But the health care fight proved this: The power isn't in Congress; the power is with you. You are the only firewall that will keep these cruel, vicious, and un-American GOP bills off of Donald Trump's desk. That's why I'm asking you to fight with us, Eddie. Are you in?

Will America become a country that rips away health care and other essential services from tens of millions of Americans in order to give tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires, and giant corporations?

I'll be honest: If the Republicans and their wealthy donors have their way, it might.

But there's a way to prevent that from happening—a path to victory. It's called the Resistance.

Earlier this year, the Resistance defeated Trumpcare by peeling off just three Republican votes in the Senate. When the vote was over in the middle of the night I ran out of the Capitol building and celebrated with Resistance members from MoveOn who were holding an all-night rally. 

It's you—the grassroots Resistance—who led the charge and made that victory possible.

We've seen again and again that a determined and persistent grassroots movement can win. Now, I'm asking for your help to make sure that MoveOn has the resources it needs to lead the movement to victory once again. That'll take an all-hands-on-deck, multimillion-dollar campaign to stop the Republican tax and budget plans.

I'm in this fight because the stakes could not be higher.

Public education, Social Security, food stamps, Medicaid—they're all under attack. Money for children's health care, money to combat the opioid epidemic, money for medical research, money for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting—that funding and so much more would face devastating cuts.

All of these devastating losses for working families just to give even bigger tax cuts to millionaires, billionaires, and multinational corporations.

You and I know that we can't build the future by starving education, letting our roads crumble and bridges collapse, throwing Americans off of their health insurance, or shutting down the big pipeline of medical and scientific research in this country.

But Republicans want to do just that—and they have the votes to do it, without needing a single Democratic vote. But we can stop them by making their tax scam politically toxic.

We can't give up hope just because we're in the minority. We overcame that challenge to defeat Trumpcare again and again. And I believe that we can do the same here.

I pledge to you that I will continue doing everything that I can, because this fight may be the most important fight in a generation for America's middle class. But I need you to fight alongside me. We need you to make calls, tell your story, show up in person and rally, volunteer, and chip in, too.

Will you join me in the fight for the heart and soul of America by clicking here to chip in $3 to support MoveOn's all-hands-on-deck push to stop the Republican budget and protect America's heart and soul.

I remember a time when American society worked for working people. After my daddy had a heart attack and was out of work for a long time, my mother—who was 50 years old at the time—got a minimum-wage job at Sears. Back then, a minimum-wage job could keep a family of three afloat.

That was possible because I grew up in an America that invested in families like mine. But if Trump and the Republicans in Congress have their way and make deeper cuts for working families to give more to those at the top, stories like mine will never be possible again.

I'm in this fight because I believe in an America that works for all of us. I hope you'll join me.

Thanks for all you do.
