The Senate tax bill is out of committee and its backers are trying to push it through right now.

Under this disastrous plan, $1.4 TRILLION would be added to the deficit, 13 million Americans would lose healthcare coverage, 87 million families will see their taxes go UP, while permanent tax breaks are handed out to millionaires and wealthy corporations.

In North Carolina alone:

  • 408,000 people would lose health insurance
  • 741,900 middle class families would actually see a tax increase
