No Polling Authority for Trump!

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 oppose the rider to the Homeland Security authorization bill that would give Trump the power to place Secret Service agents at polling places during national elections.

The rider is an act of insanity. Let a would-be dictator police polling places? This madness must not move forward. Will [the MoC] do everything in their power to oppose any bill containing this rider?

Background:

Investigate (and abolish?) ICE

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 push for an investigation into the practices of ICE (the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency).

A mass-deportation strike force is incompatible with democracy and human rights. The deportation process is already brutal. Reports are that ICE is, unsurprisingly, making it worse. It is time to investigate them and perhaps to abolish the agency altogether.

Will [the MoC] to push for an investigation of ICE?

Background:

Protect the ACA

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] once again to come to the rescue of the Affordable Care Act.

The Trump regime is continuing its work to undermine and effectively destroy the law and with it access to affordable care by millions of Americans. While there are two efforts (Alexander-Murray and Collins-Nelson) that would shore up the law, the administration is trying to poison those efforts with additions on abortion restriction and the extension of junk plans. This must stop.

Will [the MoC] work overtime to help save the ACA?

Background:

#NeverAgain!

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 continue to push for legislation at the federal level to protect our children from weapons of war.

The Parkland students have scored a big victory, getting the Florida legislature to finally pass a bill that will push back the legal purchase age and impose a three-day waiting period for gun purchases. This must be just a start. Pressure must stay on Congress until they, too, act. Will you keep the failure of the NRA lackeys in Congress to protect our children in the spotlight until we finally see our schools protected?

Background:

No Fixing the Tax Debacle!

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to demand that [the MoC] not lift a finger to help the Republicans fix their atrocious tax bill.

The Republican Tax Scam, rushed through without any input at all from Democrats, a frantic mess that skipped hearings, editing, and any thoughtful deliberation has – surprise! – a number of serious mistakes that are only now coming to light. Republicans passed the bill under reconciliation, which allowed them to pass it with a simple majority and to snub Democrats. Unfortunately for them, they’ll need a filibuster-proof 60 votes to make any changes. Tell them, please, to shove it. They were so excited to pass it, against all advice. Let them now own it like the millstone it is. DO NOT give them a single vote to fix their broken, steaming mess.
