Take Action

by Wayne Davis, Nov. 14, 2017

Our tax system is long overdue for reform and overhaul. But Robin Hood in reverse robbing the poor and middle class to give to the rich and defund critical government programs is not the way to go. Once again, it's time for action.

Don't give up by thinking that our Mass senators and reps are already lined up. Remind our elected officials.

Also, reach out to your friends and relatives in other states to help them understand the consequences and urge them to call their elected officials!

On June 26, 2017, the Supreme Court agreed to review lower court decisions that blocked President Trump’s Executive Order banning immigration from six predominantly Muslim countries (the travel ban). The Supreme Court ruling allows the government to partially enforce the travel ban. Specifically, the order allows the government to apply the ban to an individual without a “bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”
