DID YOU KNOW?

STANDING UP TO CORPORATE TAX CUTS

Since the failure of TrumpCare, we have heard that the Trump Administration was going to work on tax revisions. That is all well and good, but did you know that corporate lobbyists are pushing the White House and GOP leaders to pass a massive tax break for billionaires and giant corporations? All of this is disguised as "tax reform."

We need to speak up before the already rich become even richer and the poor are taxed beyond their means. You may have read that the plan now is to offer CEOs and rich corporations huge tax breaks. Where is the "makeup" money to come from? From Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, and other services that working people and our elderly depend on. We can't let that happen.

Please contact your elected officials in Congress and tell them this is unacceptable. Tell them not to cut critical programs in order to make the rich even richer. Catholic Social Teaching instructs us to protect the poor, not the 1%. Rich corporations must pay their fair share of taxes. The GOP administration wants to take health care away from millions of Americans. Let's not let them get away with this tax revision also.

Thanks for getting involved.

LABOR SECRETARY ACOSTA--STAND WITH WORKING PEOPLE

Labor Secretary Acosta has a decision to make. He can stand with working Americans or stand with corporate CEOs who want him to take away raises and overtime protections from millions.

We at SISTERS ONLINE prefer the latter and we believe our readers do too.

You can bet that Secretary Acosta is hearing from hoards of corporate lobbyists who are telling him to revoke the raise. If he does this, and the overtime rule is repealed, he is taking money out of the hands of working families who are already overworked and underpaid. They deserve better! They deserve fair pay for their work and extra effort, time with their families, and money to spend in their communities.

Please contact Secretary Acosta and tell him you stand with workers. We want fair pay, fair hours, and pay for overtime work.

Here is Secretary Acosta's information:

Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta
200 Constitution Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20210

1-866-487-2365

Thanks for taking action to help workers.

 

NO FOSSIL FUEL MONEY IN MIDTERM ELECTIONS

Some climate agencies are asking that all those running in the mid-term elections take a pledge to reject campaign contributions from oil, gas and coal companies. SISTERS ONLINE is spreading the word.

As we draw near to the mid-term elections and as more candidates announce they are running, please contact them all and urge them to declare that they will NOT ask for contributions from oil, gas and coal companies. By standing up to polluters the path to cleaning up elections becomes much clearer. For this to work, however, we must all take action. We must know that our elected leaders are not bought by fossil fuel money. We need our elected officials to show courage and moral leadership and show their support for our climate.

SISTERS ONLINE will be updating this action alert as more information becomes available, so please stay tuned!.

Thanks for getting involved.
