Call both your Senators and your Representative today and tell them:
Support President Obama's proposal to allow most of the Bush tax cuts for the richest 2 percent — couples making more than $250,000 and singles making more than $200,000 — to expire.
Oppose any extension of more tax cuts for the rich — even a temporary one.
Call the U.S. Capitol at 888-744-9958 (TOLL FREE)
The Senate will likely vote this week and the House may vote soon after. They need to hear from you NOW.
The toll-free number is provided by Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF), a coalition of organizations including Citizens for Tax Justice and other advocacy organizations, think tanks, labor unions, small business associations and watchdog groups.
