Tell the Climate Solutions Caucus: Protect our climate. Vote NO on the #GOPTaxScam.

The GOP leadership's tax bill is a giveaway to the Koch brothers and ExxonMobil and a disaster for the rest of us. It recklessly opens up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil drilling, gives special tax breaks specifically to the oil and gas industries, kills key support for renewable energy, and even raises taxes on the survivors of climate disasters.

As the House considers the Senate bill, the 31 GOP members of the "Climate Solutions Caucus," with a stated commitment to "reducing climate risk," are key swing votes and could stop this bill. Seven members of the caucus voted against the House version - if 12 more join them, the #GOPTaxScam will be stopped. This tax bill doesn’t “reduce climate risk,” it increases it dramatically. It raises $4.5 trillion in taxes, especially on the working and middle class, in order to give $6 trillion in tax cuts, overwhelmingly to billionaires and multi-national corporations.

Just a few days ago, nine members of the Caucus sent a letter with three other Republicans to Senate leadership asking them to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Five of the Caucus signatories voted for the House version #GOPTaxScam—Reps. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL-26), Dave Reichert (R-WA-08), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA-08), Ryan Costello (R-PA-06), and Patrick Meehan (R-PA-07).

Now they are thinking about voting for the Senate tax bill, which includes massive new tax breaks for oil and gas executives, opens up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling, and threatens renewable energy investment.

Instead of spending $6 trillion of taxpayer money to funding tax corporate tax breaks, Congress should be putting Americans to work stopping climate change and building the economy of the future.

Now is the time for the Climate Solutions Caucus to take action to protect our climate and our country—before it's too late.

    Please reconsider your support of the tax bill. It does more harm to our country’s recourses than good, raises the deficit and the reduction in taxes while it sounds good may mean reduction for education, public safety, infrastructure, etc.

    I am sick of greed! I have never seen so many gov offices run by those willing to sell out their souls for money. The earth and the humans which live here have no importance to this GOP.

    This tax is not for the people. Please vote no. It makes me sad that our Senate and Congress people would be so self serving. Vote no.

    This is a bill that will not only kill the economy, but also a lot of American citizens!

    It will trash the economy so badly that all that bribe money you took will be worthless.

    Please vote against the so called Tax and Jobs bill…it will accelerate climate change and increase oil and gas exploration at the expense of renewable and sustainable energy solutions. What ever happened to that “Boy Scout” spirit of protecting the environment for future generations?
