Phone Scripts 9.17-9.19.2018: What Are They Hiding on Kavanaugh? + More

The Senate votes next week on whether to allow Judge Kavanaugh to become a lifetime member of the Supreme Court - unless you help stop it.

The Senate and the House have the ability to protect our country from the worst of the president’s actions - but only if they hear us.

The Senate and the House plan another big tax break for ‘them as has’ - paid for by big cuts to the social safety net. And they plan to blame the Democrats for this. Unless we hold them accountable.

Make your calls.

Reunite ALL of the Children

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 insist that ALL of the migrant children separated from their parents be reunited. NOW.

More than 400 children are still separated from their parents. The administration* is trying to be rid of the Flores Settlement, which keeps kids from being held for more than 20 days. And they’re incarcerating more children as we speak. Please keep up the pressure! Reunite ALL of the kids!

Is the President* Unfit to Lead?

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 call for an independent doctor to give Donald Trump an exam to determine his mental and physical health.

It is apparently common knowledge that Trump is completely unfit to be leading the country. But everyone, Democrats included, are looking the other way. This is as insane as Trump is himself. It’s time for an exam by a competent doctor – which Ronny Jackson wasn’t. We need to know NOW. Is Trump competent to continue in office? Demand an exam.

NO more Tax Scams!

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 Republican Tax Scam 2.0.

Republicans are at it again: they want to give even more money to the super-rich and explode the deficit above its already-stratospheric level. It’s not to garner votes, because they know now that the public is against their cuts. It’s to curry favor with their donors. It’s wrong. I’m asking [the MoC] to oppose further cuts in any form.

Stop the Trade Wars!

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 Trump’s reckless trade war with China.

Everybody loses in a trade war and Trump is creating the biggest trade war in nearly a century – with an opponent, China, who can wait it out better than we can. This is insane. Please be a vocal opponent of this madness!

What Are They Hiding on Kavanaugh?

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 continue to demand a full and complete evaluation of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.

The Republicans are doing everything they can to jam this nomination through. Please continue to demand at every point that they quit hiding the evidence!
