|A Message From Indivisible Leadership|
As you’ve most likely heard, Senator Sinema has asked for changes to the IRA. Indivisible has put out the following script and request for calls to her office.
If you use the link below to call, we will be able to track the number of calls and release that information to the press and Sinema’s office.
TELL KYRSTEN SINEMA, IT’S TIME TO PASS THE INFLATION REDUCTION ACT
After more than a year of negotiations, everyone from Joe Manchin to Elizabeth Warren is on board to pass a sweeping reconciliation bill that will lower health care and energy costs for families, take badly needed climate action, and take big steps to make the wealthy and big corporations pay their fair share in taxes.
The quick summary of the good things in the bill: A 15% Corporate Minimum Tax ensuring the ultra-rich pay their fair share Investments in cleaner energy solutions that put us on the path toward a 40% reductions in emissions by 2030 Permission for Medicare to negotiate drug prices (lowering prescription drug prices) Continued lower Affordable Care Act premiums for millions of Americans And more.
But now, Senator Sinema is holding up the package.
You might ask, “Why would any Democrat threaten to vote against climate action and lowering health care costs?” Well, it’s because she wants to give a big fat giveaway to her wealthy donors. She is fighting to protect the Carried Interest Loophole, which lets private equity fat cats pay less in taxes than the rest of us do on our wages, a $14 billion giveaway.
She’s also trying to water down the 15% corporate minimum tax, potentially allowing big corporations to continue getting away with paying $0 in taxes.
Yep, you read that right. Kyrsten Sinema is fighting for a $14 billion tax break for wealthy donors on Wall St. and wants to help big corporations dodge taxes entirely – all while holding up legislation that would lower health care and energy costs for the rest of us.
This cannot stand.
Call now to demand Sinema stop holding the Democratic agenda hostage, and vote to pass the Inflation Reduction Act.
