CWAers Talk to Neighbors about How the GOP Tax Bill only Helped Corporations and Big Banks

CWAers in Colorado's 6th Congressional District are out in full force knocking on more than 6,000 doors for a four-week canvass focused on talking to voters about the Republican corporate tax cut bill, and gathering pledges not to vote for the incumbent Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.), who supported the bill, in November.

To get the tax cut bill passed, corporations made big promises to create new jobs and raise wages. Instead, they've funneled those tax bill profits into massive stock buybacks that only enrich wealthy executives while their workers' wages remain stagnant.

As we see big corporations fail to live up to the promises they made, CWA members are making sure voters remember that Rep. Coffman voted for the enormous giveaway to Wall Street paid for by working families, and the best way to do that is to talk to their neighbors one-on-one.

CWAers had conversations with voters at the doors about how the tax plan is only benefiting corporations; how Wall Street Banks, like Wells Fargo – the same Wall Street banks that discriminate against people of color – got the biggest tax cuts; and how Rep. Coffman received huge political contributions from Wall Street.
