From Helen Blank at National Women’s Law Center:

The House is scheduled to vote on the bill this Wednesday night. This is such a significant vote because this bill would eliminate deductions in the tax code targeted to child care and children and families, raise taxes on vulnerable women and families while affording huge tax cuts to wealthy and big corporations. Equally important, it would create a $1.5 TRILLION hole in the deficit, which Republican members will use as a rationale for cutting critical supports for children such as child care, Medicaid, and Food Stamps and have already tied to “welfare reform” next year.

We are asking that you help to stop this bill by calling key Congressional offices. You can also send them an email, but we know that calls have a greater impact. We are simply urging Members to vote NO on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Please share this email with your colleagues, constituents, members, and allies in their districts and/or across the state.

If you need more evidence that this bill is bad for child care and bad for working families, please review our recent blogs on the topics:
