The millionaires in the Senate voted Monday for a bill that will give the richest 2% of the country – including themselves – a huge tax break. But one in three middle class workers could actually see their taxes go UP as a result of the Obama-GOP tax plan. A vote could happen in the House as soon as today.

Nancy Pelosi

Democratic members of the House, led by Rep. Peter DeFazio of Oregon, were near unanimous in warning Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week not to bring the Obama-GOP plan for a vote without the support of the caucus.

Speaker Pelosi said she wouldn’t bring the bill “in its current form” to the floor of the House, but that leaves room to add sweeteners to buy off individual members while doing nothing to change the deeply unfair underpinnings of this bill.

It’s Nancy Pelosi’s obligation to refuse to bring major legislation like this up for a vote unless a majority of the Democratic caucus supports the bill, as she already agreed not to do. If a majority of Democrats won’t vote for the Obama-GOP tax plan, Speaker Pelosi must not bring it to the floor for a vote. So let’s find out where Democrats stand.

We’re organizing an EMERGENCY whip count to call Democratic Members of Congress and find out where they stand on the Obama-GOP tax plan. FDL Activists have already reported more than 400 calls since Monday. Here’s a script to use when you call; a list of Democratic members of Congress and a form to report your call are below.

Hi, this is [YOUR NAME].

I’m calling about the Obama-GOP tax plan. Does Rep. [LAST NAME] support Speaker Pelosi if she brings the tax plan to the floor against the will of a majority of the Democratic caucus?

Last week the Democratic caucus stood together in near unanimous opposition to the Obama-GOP tax plan, and Nancy Pelosi said she wouldn’t bring it to the floor.

I want to find out exactly where Rep. [LAST NAME] stands.

Please tell Rep. [LAST NAME] has my support if HE/SHE opposes this giveaway to the rich.

Thank you for your time.
