Progressives against the
tax scam rally today across Montana

Events are scheduled for Helena, Missoula, Bozeman, and Kalispell. The Montana Post has the times and places.

In Kalispell, the festivities begin at noon and last for an hour outside the office of Sen. Steve Daines, located in the KM Building (40 2nd St East, Suite 211). You can RSVP online, or just show up.

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has a seven-page summary of how the bill would hurt Americans with the lowest incomes, and help people with the highest incomes. It’s a classic case of punishing the needy and rewarding the greedy.

Sen. Daines, one of the wealthiest men in Congress, reportedly does not support the bill because he thinks it’s too generous with big corporations and too stingy with smaller businesses. If you’re a progressive, don’t cheer. He’s holding out for more tax breaks for a special class of high income people.
