TAKE ACTION - Tax Bill is on a "warp-speed" track

Posted on : 12/04/2017

The tax bill is on a “warp speed” track for approval while many aspects of the bill will have a direct impact on people with disabilities.  The Consortium of Citizens with Disabilities has a list of five reasons that this tax bill should be defeated.  These are talking points for us to present to our congressional representatives to consider as they are reading the bill language.  We encourage everyone to send a message to their representatives and use this information.

Select those which you feel most comfortable with but the most important is talking point #1.

  • Simply stated: the tax bill will drive the deficit up by over a trillion dollars setting the stage for entitlement cuts including cuts to Medicaid.  Medicaid is the backbone of services to people with developmental disabilities. 

Here is the number for the US Capitol switchboard.  Call it and ask for your House member: 202-225-3121

Here is the link to the US House web site where you can find your Congressperson and information on him or her:
