ATF Reaction to GOP House Budget


"Americans don't want a budget that gives huge tax cuts for millionaires paid for by slashing Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security. Americans would rather invest in public education and infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, and broadband access, instead of cutting corporate taxes. And Americans don't want more tax breaks and loopholes for Wall Street while the rest of us foot the bill.

"This Republican budget is every bit as big a disaster as the Republican health care plan."

-- Frank Clemente, executive director, Americans for Tax Fairness

Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF) is a diverse campaign of more than 420 national, state and local endorsing organizations united in support of a fair tax system that works for all Americans. It has come together based on the belief that the country needs comprehensive, progressive tax reform that results in greater revenue to meet our growing needs. This requires big corporations and the wealthy to pay their fair share in taxes, not to live by their own set of rules.
