For Immediate Release
Americans for Tax Fairness Reaction to Election Results
WASHINGTON - "From coast to coast and everywhere in between, voters spoke loudly and clearly to reject the agenda of the last 12 months. They rejected divisiveness and toxicity, and they rejected taking away people's healthcare in order to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and corporations. Voters rejected a rigged system in favor of the powerful and elite that hurts working families and small businesses. And make no mistake: voters rejected any tax legislation that will cut Medicaid and Medicare, raise taxes on the middle class, and further disadvantage small businesses and families in favor of corporations and millionaires."
- Frank Clemente, Americans for Tax Fairness Executive Director
This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF) is a diverse campaign of more than 425 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.
