NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2017 — As Republicans in Congress double down on their efforts to give massive tax cuts to the wealthy and well-connected, Democratic Congressman and Chair of the House Democratic Caucus Joe Crowley, Congressman Thomas R. Suozzi, New York City Councilmember Corey Johnson and Andy Pallotta, president of the New York State United Teachers (NYSUT), will join Not One Penny for a press call on the latest efforts by Trump and Republican leadership to further rig the tax code in favor of the millionaires, billionaires, and wealthy corporations. Speakers on the call will discuss new polling results and the devastating impact the GOP tax plan will have on working families in New York.

This week, Not One Penny also released a new ad showing that New York families cannot afford the tax increase they face under the GOP’s tax bill, including the elimination of deductions for state and local taxes. The new six-figure ad targets Republican Members of Congress in New York who have not taken a firm stand against the bill.
