15 Dec Press Conference and March in Irvine to Demand Representative Mimi Walters to Stop the GOP Tax Plan

IRVINE, CA - The Orange County Labor Federation (OCLF) along with 90+ labor unions, health advocates, faith, senior groups, and community allies will come together for working families to demand Representative Mimi Walters to vote no on the GOP Tax bill. This GOP’s atrocious tax plan will have a profound impact to California’s job market and health coverage.  The tax plan gives billions of dollars in tax breaks to companies that profit and outsource jobs, and will fund those tax breaks by cutting healthcare for hard working Americans.  In fact, the bill would raise taxes for many middle-income families in California by eliminating state and local tax deductions and will also increase costs of healthcare coverage. The press conference and rally will bring together the community to stand with working families and will fight every attempt by the Trump administration and GOP leaders to cut services and programs that working families rely on. These programs include healthcare, social security, Pell Grants and financial aid to help students afford college.

06 Nov Stop GOP Giveaways to the Rich

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas, this morning as yet another American community is reeling from the horror of gun violence. We salute the first responders who heroically attended to the victims of this latest mass shooting and call on our nation to unite around solutions to stop the carnage. Message of the Day - Stop GOP Giveaways to the Rich The new GOP tax bill would explode the federal budget deficit by more than $1.5 trillion by slashing taxes for the rich and powerful, wealthy corporations and foreign investors—leaving working families to pay the tab. Working families would end up paying more taxes as the GOP seeks to end deductions for housing, state and local taxes, medical expenses and educational costs. Meanwhile, about one-third of the benefits of this tax plan—approximately $70 billion a year—would go directly to foreign investors who own shares in American companies, says an analysis by Steven Rosenthal at the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center. The AFL-CIO demands a tax code that works for working families while providing the resources necessary for America’s workers and businesses to compete and succeed on the world stage. Kitchen Table Economics None at all: That’s the benefit to our economy, job growth or wage benefits from cutting taxes on powerful corporations and the rich. Take Action No More Tax Breaks for Billionaires! Source: The Labor Wire, AFL-CIO...
