Tell the Senate: Tax Billionaires to pay for essential Build Back Better housing programs
A small handful of conservative Democrats are blocking the historic Build Back Better investment agenda. As a result, essential housing provisions are now on the chopping block.
Cutting housing vouchers for those most in need when America’s 700+ billionaires saw their wealth skyrocket by $2.1 trillion over the first 19 months of the pandemic is outrageous.
We can pay for all of President Biden’s historic Build Back Better investment agenda when the rich and the corporations finally pay their share of taxes.
The House of Representatives already has a plan to generate $2.1 trillion in taxes. And now, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden has proposed the Billionaires Income Tax, which will raise hundreds of billions of dollars by taxing wealth like work, ensuring billionaires pay taxes on all of their income.
Week after week, the toll of the pandemic grows, damaging the health and economic security of millions. Joblessness is skyrocketing; shocking numbers are running out of food, losing health insurance, and failing to pay rent. These are depression conditions, and Congress’ response must match the severity of the downturn to prevent another Great Depression. Each of these numbers point to solutions Congress must speedily enact.
