Amy Coney Barrett Will Fight for the Wealthy and Well-Connected — Not For Us
"They rushed Barrett onto the Court in less than 30 days, but those same senators still stand idly by as Americans struggle to survive this pandemic, claiming their hands are tied. It’s beyond shameful, it’s outright disgusting. As we look at a new 6-3 conservative majority, Tax March understands the stakes of this election. We must restore the Supreme Court’s credibility with the American people. This fight is just beginning."

Tax March Statement on President Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee
“President Trump and Senate Republicans are once again upending Senate precedent to jam through another right-wing Supreme Court nominee. This is a hypocritical and nakedly partisan power grab that once again proves where Trump and McConnell’s priorities lie – with the wealth and big corporations."

Tax March Statement on the Passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
“We are heartbroken to learn of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing this evening. Justice Ginsberg was a courageous fighter for middle and working class Americans, and a tireless advocate for equal protection under the law. Her contributions to our nation are unparalleled, and women like her have inspired the spirit that we bring to Tax March: one of tenacity, courage and a commitment to justice. She is already dearly missed."

McConnell’s ‘Skinny Relief’ Bill Rightfully Flops in the Senate
"Look around: the American people don’t need Congress to protect corporate interests and issue tax credits for private school tuition. We need money in our pockets, we need robust and ongoing unemployment benefits for nearly 30 million unemployed Americans, and we need to bail out the small businesses that are the fabric of our communities. We don’t need skinny relief."

Senate Republicans Head Home Without Passing COVID Relief Package, Leaving Millions of Americans Behind
“What have Republicans delivered for the millions of Americans in need of direct aid right now? A smattering of do-nothing presidential memoranda from the do-nothing president, one of which just shifts the responsibility of extending unemployment assistance to state governments — the same state governments roiled in budget crises Trump refuses to remedy. Instead of delivering real aid to struggling families, Trump and his friends in the Senate wrote down a whole bunch of nothing on a stack of paper and set sail for the summer."

Trump’s Payroll Tax Executive Memorandum is a Holiday for the Wealthy and a Death Sentence for Social Security and Medicare Beneficiaries
“Trump’s payroll tax holiday is a lose-lose strategy. First, it won’t deliver any relief to struggling small businesses or laid-off workers, but it will dangerously diminish funding for Social Security and Medicare at a time when millions of people depend on these programs."
