DID YOU KNOW?

TRUMP AND NAFTA

President Trump has said he is willing to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with Canada and Mexico. The question is: Who will it benefit? The poor worker? or corporations?

Knowing President Trump, the answer seems to be pretty clear. It will be corporations. Sisters Online does not want this to happen.

We certainly agree that NAFTA has to be renegotiated. We've been saying that for years. There is so much wrong with it, eg: outsourcing of jobs. We believe that people and the environment have to be the priority, not Wall Street. Will you contact President Trump and tell him this? People and environment first, not corporations and Wall Street. His conflicts of interest in this are amazing, eg: businesses in Mexico and Canada. Also, people have seen a rough draft of revisions, and it highly favors corporations.

The renegotiating is happening right now. Sisters Online hopes you will get involved by contacting President Trump and demanding the following:

--strong, enforceable labor and environmental standards
--a transparent negotiating process
--no corporate loopholes.

Here is the information you need:

CONGRESS: NO NEW TAX LEGISLATION UNTIL WE SEE TRUMP'S TAX RETURNS

As our readers know, President Trump has made known new tax legislation that amounts to huge cuts for big corporations and the rich like himself. No one is quite sure how much President Trump stands to gain from this deal. On tax day in mid-April, many people marched in the streets around the country to say the same thing. Now, Congress needs to hear our message.

Please contact your elected people in Congress and tell them NO to a tax plan that helps the rich and punishes the poor. Nothing until we know what President Trump is hiding in his returns and there is a change made in the Trump plan that helps corporations. We've had enough!

Every modern day president of our country has made their taxes known to the general public. Trump is afraid of his conflict of interests, ties to foreign interests, potential corruption, history of making money by scamming hardworking Americans and tax dodging. Again, enough is enough. We can't stand for any more of this.

Trump is making it look like his new tax plan is such a gift to us. He's saying he's going to surprise us like he says so often. Isn't he great for the American people? Don't believe any of it.

Contact your elected officials and say NO to any tax plan until President Trump makes his tax returns public.

What tax loops is the President using for his personal gain?

Thanks for taking a stand.
