American Action Network Promotes Tax Reform Framework With One Million Robocalls Nationwide

Calls highlight a $1,200 tax cut for middle-class families among the merits of the plan

WASHINGTON – As the tax reform debate continues to unfold, American Action Network’s Middle-Class Growth Initiative (MCGI) today launched a one million robocall campaign targeting constituents in 45 congressional districts nationwide. The call highlights the merits of the Tax Reform Framework, including a new analysis that finds middle-class families would see a tax cut of more than $1,200 a year under the plan. View the list of districts targeted here.

“Hard-working families across the country are suffering under our outdated and unfair tax code. However, relief from those burdens is on the way thanks to a bold plan put forward by the White House and congressional leaders. The Tax Reform Framework lowers rates, simplifies the tax code and puts over $1,200 in the pockets of middle-class families,” said AAN Executive Director Corry Bliss. “Congress must act with urgency and deliver tax reform for America’s middle class.”

The Middle-Class Growth Initiative is a project of American Action Network that launched to advocate for the passage of meaningful tax reform legislation. The multi-pronged campaign, now totaling over $8 million, has included advertising on television, radio, direct mail and mobile billboards in over 40 congressional districts nationwide.

SCRIPT 

ANNCR: Hello, I’m calling on behalf of the American Action Network at 800-339-4650 with an important legislative update.

Last week, Congress released a new tax reform proposal to simplify the tax code and cut middle-class taxes. An independent analysis found that an average middle-class family would save over $1,200 per year under this new plan.

The new plan would lower tax rates, nearly double the standard deduction for America’s hardworking families, and enhance the Child Tax Credit. These are exactly the changes that are needed to bring back job from overseas and keep the economy growing.

Please contact your Congressman/Congresswoman [NAME] at [Phone Number] and thank [her/him] for fighting for tax reform that simplifies the tax code and cuts middle-class taxes.
