Tax Scam and Arctic Oil Drilling

The tax scam bill provided massive tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans and corporations by selling out the environment and public health. The tax bill will end up raising taxes on most Americans in the long-term, while cutting taxes for big polluters and extending dirty energy tax preferences. It will likely lead to cuts of important programs that protect our environment, health, and well-being. The bill also opened the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling, which would cause irreversible damage to the home of the Gwich’in people and pristine wildlife habitat.
