Tax Fairness

Over the last decade, billionaires have increased their wealth by trillions of dollars while paying lower tax rates than middle class workers. All while dozens of price-gouging corporations made record profits while avoiding taxes altogether thanks to loopholes in our two-tiered tax system. To build an economy that works for all of us—one where everyone has access to affordable healthcare, good paying jobs and economic opportunity—the wealthy must pay their fair share of taxes just like the rest of us. It’s time for lawmakers to stop the ultra-rich and wealthy corporations from tax-dodging and from using their hoarded wealth to interfere in our democracy with political donations that drown out the voices and votes of regular people.
