Cambridge Common Tax Day Rally April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Time to stand up for our values and priorities!

President Trump’s tax bill is ensuring billions of dollars in profits to large corporations– and peanuts to working people. Meanwhile, the President and Congress have agreed on unparalleled increases in Pentagon spending that will lead to more wars, more suffering, and take even more money from programs that benefit all of us. Cuts in essential programs from climate protection to Medicaid, housing, Social Security, and Medicare are on the drawing board. We must turn around Washington’s budget insanity.

The Trump tax cuts for the 1% (approved by Congress) will drain the treasury of over $1.5 trillion of needed revenue over the next 10 years. In the near future, these deficits will drive deep cuts to health care, education, food stamps, affordable housing and just about every other domestic program for years to come.

Congress has voted dramatic increases in war spending and first-strike nuclear weapons. These will make the world much more dangerous and drive further cuts to our economic, social and environmental security. No first strike weapons for Trump!

President Trump has urged draconian cuts to housing, Medicaid, food stamps, and almost every other domestic program.

And to top it all off, Trump has still refused to release his tax returns

Rev. Vernon Walker, Boston Rescue Mission
