Congress should allow 35 corporate welfare handouts to expire at the end of the year – saving taxpayers $19.4 billion and reducing the number of special interest carve-outs in our tax code. Not only are these tax extenders bad policy, but unaccountable lawmakers should not be allowed to put taxpayers on the hook for handouts to well-connected, wealthy corporations.
Tell Washington: No more tax extenders or provisions for well-connected special interests!
It’s unfair for taxpayers to shoulder the burden of wealthy industries while hardworking American families are struggling to get ahead. All businesses should be treated the same – and should not rely on hardworking Americans’ tax dollars for their success.
We, the undersigned, are fed up with “business as usual” in Washington. We are tired of the priorities of hardworking taxpayers being placed behind the interests of lobbyists and corporate America. Unaccountable politicians must not be allowed to make corporate welfare decisions for the nation’s budget.
