Fire Scott Pruitt

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 the firing of Scott Pruitt.

In any other administration, Pruitt would be long gone. In this most corrupt one, he is still there and it’s a disgrace. Pruitt is corrupt and is destroying the EPA. He must go. Will [the MoC] call for his removal?

Thank Your Senators for Protecting the Mueller Investigation

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to thank the Senator for supporting the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act.

We’re in perilous times, with the rule of law being viciously attacked not only by the president* but also by the Republican Party. There is a real danger that the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller will be interfered with either by ordering Mueller’s firing or by firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation. The Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act would offer protection against Mueller’s firing, at least, and is clearly needed. Thank you for your clear and unwavering support!

Thank You for Opposing the Nomination of Mike Pompeo

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I'm calling to thank the Senator for her opposition to the nomination of Mike Pompeo for Secretary of State.

As Senator Feinstein put it, Mike Pompeo has a “certain disdain for diplomacy which … disqualifies him.” I would add that he’s both a hawk and a sycophant who will only amplify and enable Trump’s worst tendencies.

Thank you for your opposition to Pompeo’s nomination!

Background:

NO on Gina Haspel

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I'm calling to ask the Senator to vote NO on the nomination of Gina Haspel for Director of the CIA.

Gina Haspel is, quite plainly, a war criminal. She advocated for, undertook, and covered up the most brutal torture imaginable. There is and no excuse for her behavior. It was in violation of the Geneva Conventions. To say she was “just following orders” is to employ the excuse that was repudiated at Nuremberg. She must not be confirmed.

Will the Senator vehemently oppose the nominations of Gina Haspel?

No on New Food Stamp Work Requirements

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I'm calling to ask the Representative to oppose the Republican proposal for new work requirements for food stamp recipients.

First the Republicans gave trillions to the indolent rich with their tax scam. Now for step two:  strip protections away from those who need them most. Why not start with taking away food from the needy? This proposal would dramatically increase bureaucratic reporting requirements (without paying for them) and dramatically underfund retraining programs, while requiring attendance to them. It’s a transparent effort to kick people off the rolls and leave them starving. This is vicious. It must be fought tooth and nail. Will [Representative Huffman/Thompson] oppose this vehemently?

Protect Our Coast from Oil Development

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask the Senator to support SB 834, which will protect the California coast from the threat of offshore drilling posed by the Trump administration.

SB 834 will direct the State Lands Commission not to approve any new infrastructure to support new oil development nor to allow any increased flow rate in current infrastructure. Coastal oil development would permanently scar the California coastline, endanger ocean ecosystems and hasten global warming. California needs carbon-neutral energy for a safe and healthy future, not a give-away to GOP oil industry donors.

Will the Senator support SB 834?
