WNC Tax Scam Protest: Asheville

Presented by: Indivisible Asheville/WNC – Indivisible Black Mountain – Indivisible Citizens of Catawba Valley – Madison County Indivisible – Progressive Democrats Resistance Group (McDowell Co.)
Hundreds of thousands of people across the country are rising up in protest over the next few days. Join us Monday in Asheville. Tuesday in Hickory, and Wednesday in Black Mountain, and make your voices heard.
The disastrous tax bill the Republicans just rushed through Congress will have serious consequences for millions of Americans for years to come. They have essentially mortgaged our future, our healthcare, our retirement, and our country’s fiscal health, for the sake of tax giveaways to the rich and big business.
In North Carolina alone, 408,000 people would lose health insurance and 741,900 families would see a tax increase under this plan.
The modest tax cuts for working families and the middle class expire in a few years, while the massive cuts to the super rich and big corporations remain permanent, resulting in a deficit that can’t pay for itself of over $1 TRILLION. How do they plan to pay for it?
* Cuts to Medicare – $25 BILLION slashed in 2018, for starters
* Cuts to Social Security
* Cuts to healthcare
* Cuts to individual tax deductions
* Then, in just a few years, tax increases for the middle class, while the tax decreases for the rich remain permanent
