The American Sustainable Business Council’s Senior Tax Analyst, John O'Neill asks supporters to immediately target the following seven “on the fence” Republican Senators a very close vote, on the vitally important tax bill with long-term repercussions:

Sen. James Lankford (R, OK) – Concerned about the federal debt.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R, WI) – Concerned that the tax bill does too little to help small business.

Sen. Susan Collins (R, ME) – Concerned about the wealthy getting most benefit.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R, AZ) – Concerned about how the bill will affect the sick and grow the debt.

Sen. John McCain (R, AZ) – Concerned that the bill’s not following regular order and does too much for the rich.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R, FL) and Sen. Mike Lee (R, UT) – Concerned that the tax bill does too little for working families while cutting the top corporate tax rate to 21 percent from 35 percent.

The long-term repercussions include:

  • Adding $1.5 trillion to the federal deficit, forcing cuts to essential federal programs, and reducing spending on items like infrastructure and education that strengthen our economy.
  • Creating a territorial tax that will make U.S.-based businesses less competitive and allow multinational corporations to continue to evade their fair share of taxes.
  • Ignoring the needs of  working Americans and the middle class, whose consumer spending drives the economy as a whole.

This bill will take our economy in the wrong direction.

Swaying the small number of senators necessary to kill this bill will pay long-term dividends.
