Tomorrow, the Senate will have a chance to show us where their priorities really lie — either with the top 2% or the other 98% of us. 

We know the tax system is rigged in favor of the ultra-rich and corporations at the expense of the rest of us. Ending the Bush tax cuts for the top 2% is a good first step towards tax fairness. Senate Democrats have a bill that will do just that, but the GOP refuses to make the wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.

The GOP believes that giving away $1 trillion in tax breaks to the richest 2% will create jobs. We believe the middle class is the engine of our economy and that when working people have money, they spend it, creating business and jobs.
