Americans for Tax Fairness Reaction to Election Results


"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

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.
