This week, Democrats are taking up the fight for tax fairness, pressuring Republicans on the "Buffett rule" to make sure millionaires and billionaires don’t pay a lower tax rate than the rest of us.
It’s a good start, but progressives need to use this opportunity to pressure Democratic leadership to deal with the whole problem. In addition to the Buffett rule, Democratic leaders need to pledge to allow the disastrous Bush tax cuts that only benefit the wealthiest to expire and commit to reforming the corporate tax code – so that corporations making billions are forced to pay their taxes like everyone else.
Sign our petition to Democratic leadership: end the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy and make corporations pay their fair share.
