Campaign for America's Future

Like everyone else, corporations should pay their fair share.

Yet conservatives in Congress don’t see it that way. They’re about to give big business a “get-out-of-jail-free” card. They call it the “repatriation tax holiday.”    

They want us to look the other way while corporations sneak $2 trillion in taxable profits through the back door. 

You may have heard about the absurd lengths big companies go to avoid paying their fair share. (Remember the “double Irish with a Dutch sandwich”?) The “tax holiday” is another example of big business using lobbyists to rewrite the rules.

This has to stop.

Campaign for America’s Future is in this fight. We are working with other progressive groups to put the people’s outrage in the face of the legislators. We must stop the “repatriation tax holiday.”

Eight out of ten people agree with us. They have lobbyists, but we have numbers.  

Can you help with a donation of any amount to support this campaign? 

Their strategy will be to do this in the dead of night. We can’t necessarily count on the media to inform the American people: Many of their corporate parents are among the beneficiaries of this terrible law.

Please make a donation to the campaign to stop the corporate tax holiday. Make everyone pay their fair share.

Sen. Mitch McConnell said the idea “has a lot of support in our conference.” If his colleagues have received even a fraction of the $1,611,582 the banking industry has showered on the minority leader over the past five years, that comes as no surprise. 

Make a contribution to this campaign. We can’t do it without you.
