Actions! 4.1-4.7.2019

Uncertainty. Inconsistencies. Lies. That’s what this administration brings us.
We need the actual ~400 page Mueller report. Now. Period.
And more than anything, we need to continue to protect the ACA.

ACTIONS & EVENTS
Before you do anything else,
please use our Phone Scripts 4.1-4.7.2019 to call our Members of Congress.


Now until April 2
Last few days to comment, so  comment here about the current administration's efforts to decrease funding for supplemental nutrition (SNAP). We cannot look away for even a moment - the damage being done is too great.


From the Indivisible Team:
Right now, there are three meaningful things that you can do to protect health care for millions while this makes its way through the courts:

  • Pressure our House Democrats to use their oversight and investigatory power to hold the Trump administration accountable for their sabotage of the Affordable Care Act. Call Jared Huffman and Mike Thompson, and demand that they ask the tough questions -- ask them what they’re doing about Trump’s attack on our health care right now.

  • Keep calling to get our members of Congress to commit to building on the success of the ACA and lay the groundwork for a single-payer system. Ask our representatives to cosponsor Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s Medicare For All Act (we’ve got a call script!), but go a step further. Demand your members of Congress lay the groundwork now for what comes next: that means holding hearings, hearing from experts, working through the policy debates, building consensus, and drafting legislation so that it’s ready when we take power. Your continued pressure can ensure that they do this.

  • Organize, organize, organize to reverse the radical, conservative transformation of our judicial system (read: win in 2020). Right now, that means asking our senators to fight like hell to block additional Trump appointees to district and circuit courts. It also means knocking doors to take back power in the Senate and the White House to ensure that our district and federal courts are occupied by qualified judges dedicated to safeguarding our rights and promoting justice -- not advancing partisan political goals.

Mike Thompson introduces HR925 two months ago. It has been referred to the Committee on Natural Resources.

This bill would extend the authorization of appropriations for allocation to carry out approved wetlands conservation projects under the North American Wetlands Conservation Act through fiscal year 2024.

H. CON. RES. 15
Expressing the commitment of the Congress to the Paris Agreement.

Jared Huffman introduced House Concurrent Resolution 15 in February. This bill would express Congress’ commitment to the Paris Agreement (despite the current president’s desire to abandon it), and has been referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs.

SCRIPTS
Make your phone calls.

We rallied to preserve the Mueller investigation. We rallied to protect the Affordable Care Act. We rallied to demand that children be reunited with their parents. Each time we were – for the time being – successful. But our work isn’t done. If his report isn’t released in its entirety, protecting Mueller will have been for nought. If the ACA is struck down by the Supreme Court, our saving it will be undone. And, while some children have been reunited with their parents, others are still lost.

It’s critical to keep calling our representatives. Our calls are the proof they need that the public cares. They’ve worked before, but our work isn’t over. Please keep calling!

Please use our Phone Scripts 4.1-4.7.2019.
