Making the Tax Code Work for Working Families

12:00 - 1:15 PM EDT

Please note that this event will take place on Tuesday, August 31st, not on August 30th as originally advertised. We apologize for any confusion.

As Congress returns from recess, they are poised to commence the biggest tax debate since the Bush tax cuts were passed in 2001 and 2003. The debate thus far has centered on whether or not the tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans should be allowed to expire.

But what are the stakes for middle and low-income Americans in the tax debate? If conservatives hold the tax package hostage to budget-busting high-income tax breaks, what do the middle-class and low-wage workers stand to lose?

Join us for a conversation on the upcoming tax debate, and why Congress must act this year to make the tax code work for working families.
