Phone Scripts 1.22-24.2018: Stay Strong/Boycott State of the Union Address

The Republican Congress decided that shutting down the government was so much better than negotiating with Democrats in good faith. This week, we thank our Senators and Representatives for voting NO on the continuing resolution and urge them to continue to do so until DACA is resolved and CHIP is funded. And because the Republican President has failed, to boycott the State of the Union address.

Stay Strong and Stay Firm!

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to thank [the MoC] for withholding their vote for a continuing resolution until there’s a both a clean DACA bill and CHIP funding attached. And not as a quid-pro-quo for the expensive and singularly absurd wall.

The Republicans aren’t negotiating in good faith. In fact, they’re barely pretending to negotiate at all, instead trying to deflect responsibility for their actions by holding CHIP renewal hostage and telling lies. Don’t let them get away with it. If we don’t protect the Dreamer and CHIP children now we never will. Raise your voice and let the public know the truth. And withhold your vote until they deal or cave.

Thank you for standing firm! Never, ever give in.

Boycott the State of the Union Address

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to boycott the State of the Union address.

In normal times boycotting the Address would be unthinkable. However. Trump is unfit to be President. He is an authoritarian who has called for attacks on the press, the judiciary and the rule of law. This when he isn’t calling countries with brown people “shitholes” and asking to let in lily-white Norwegians. He’s also a pathological liar. He doesn’t deserve to be respected and he shouldn’t be listened to. A number of Representatives have already said they won’t attend the address. Will [the MoC] please join them in boycotting the State of the Union address?
