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.
This week we ask our legislators to use their leverage: 14,000 Dreamers have already lost their protection status. Parents are being turned away from the Children’s Health Insurance Program. This is unacceptable, and we ask our Senators and Congressmen to continue government funding only if these measures are passed. We also ask them to ensure the Mueller investigation takes its course, and the Census process is protected.
The New Year brings us some new data. According to the Washington Post, Trump has told 1,950 lies in only 347 days in office. We cannot allow another two years of unchecked power by a man so unfit to lead. Our lawmakers need to diligently rein in this administration – and its enablers. Keep calling!
Finish off this year strong. Take time to thank our Members of Congress for standing with us as we Resist. And hold the republicans accountable for the disastrous tax bill, DACA, CHIP, and the Russian investigation!
Urge our Senators and. Representatives to let the Republicans shut down the government if DACA and CHIP are not included. Thank our members of Congress for their votes on the Republican Tax. Scam - and encourage them to repeal it. And don’t forget Net Neutrality! There is so much that only we can do!
Give yourself a holiday gift - the knowledge that you are working to defeat the TrumpTaxScam and provide needed medical care to millions of children. Call our representatives about funding CHIP, protecting the investigation into Russian electoral interference, and preserving Net Neutrality.
The first sentence of each script contains the primary ‘ask’ for those who like a shorter phone script; use our scripts as a guide. Your own personal wording, and your story, are the most powerful messages to impact our MoCs!
As Republicans rush to finish their tax plan, a USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll, released on Sunday, showed that only 32 percent of Americans support the Republican tax plan, with more than half predicting it would not lower tax bills for their families or help the economy in a major way. The people are right and the GOP is wrong. Please keep calling and let our MoCs know you oppose this bill.
With so much going on, focus is important. Please make your calls today - and again tomorrow. Our scripts urge our Senators and Representatives to hold the Republican Congress to account for the Tax Scam, efforts to stop the Mueller investigation, failure to act on the DREAMers and to fund CHIP, and using tax dollars to hush up sexual impropriety.
