Georgia cuts unemployment insurance benefits to protect corporations
Organizations and citizens in disagreement of the proposed bill argue:
• To not put corporations first, and stop treating them as individuals
• Refuse to act on any corporate tax extender until they extend vital emergency unemployment benefits that expired last December.
• Make permanent the improvements in the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit that lift women and their families out of poverty.
• Always require that corporate tax extenders are fully paid for by closing other corporate tax loopholes.
• Decline to extend or make permanent any corporate tax extenders that ship profits and jobs offshore.
• Every dollar spent to extend corporate tax loophole is a dollar that's not available to restore programs decimated by years of budget cuts or make new investments to expand opportunity, create jobs, and strengthen our economy.
