UUJEC – Grassroots Call on Taxes and Health

Join the Emergency National
Grassroots Call on Taxes & Health
Monday, Nov. 20th at NOON EST
Dial: 855-392-2520 Access Code: 6957408#

Congress is moving rapidly to pass a massive tax bill that would have enormous implications for the Affordable Care Act, Medicare, the future of critical federal human needs programs, and millions of individuals and families across the country. Additionally, the bill could cap the deduction for state property taxes, forcing cuts to state and local programs like education, public safety, and infrastructure. The bottom line is that there is nothing in this bill that assists or protects people living in poverty.

Your action is needed now!
