PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5/CNN) - Arizona citizens are gathering outside of senators' offices to rally against President Trump's GOP tax reform plan.

Organizers of the rally said they are protesting the massive tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans leaving the average American behind.

Concerned citizens will gather to inform Sen. Jeff Flake and Sen. John McCain that they strongly oppose the tax reform plan.

Rally participants will gather outside of Sens. Flake's and McCain's offices from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.

House Republicans unveiled their new tax bill last Thursday and described it as a break aimed at helping most Americans.

"It's very clear and obvious that the whole purpose of this is a middle-class tax cut," Ryan said in an interview with CNN's Phil Mattingly, shortly after the bill was made public. "And more to the point, we need to get faster economic growth."

Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady said during the news conference that the tax bill "has President Trump's full support."

The President issued a statement applauding the bill's release but added "there is much work left to do." Trump later told reporters in the Oval Office that a tax reform bill will be done "before Christmas," calling it "one of the great Christmas presents."
