We’ve been far more successful than we could have imagined a year ago and there are tens of thousands of us nationwide. There’s lots to be thankful for. And we will win this. But this week the Republicans are racing at breakneck speed to rush a massive overhaul of the tax system through Congress before the public wakes up to what a disaster this overhaul would be for them and the country. Please get on the phone, or fax or email with these scripts today.
Russian interference. Taxes. DACA. Taxes. Healthcare. Taxes. Education. Taxes. Medicare and Medicaid. Time to make some calls! The Republican’s goal is to give significant tax giveaways to wealthy corporations and the richest of rich people. Meanwhile, they happily take away healthcare, disaster relief and other services from working folks.The following scripts give you the tools to help stop this madness.
There is only one way that we will stop the Republican Congress from giving a giant tax break to the very wealth - our calls. Some time in the next few days the Republican House will vote to approve their most recent version of the Tax Scam. We need to call our representatives - and encourage our friends and family members living in other states to pick up the phone and make their calls.
Amid all the furor over candidates, scandals, and the Republican President’s trip to Asia, the press has misplaced what Congress is doing. Our job is to help our nation find its way. We count on each other to do this.
Your calls change minds and encourage our Members of Congress. We are asking our representatives to oppose the Republican tax scam, support gun safety, protect American citizens who use the Affordable Care Act, and renew funding for CHIP programs for children all over the US.
Keep calling: your voice is just as important now as it was in January! This week we are protecting ourselves and our country. We need to flood the lines to stop the TrumpTax Scam! The plan is a reverse Robin Hood scheme that will explode the deficit, and bind our children and grandchildren to corporate tax relief. The Mueller investigation is at risk with more and more evidence showing that 45s campaign colluded with Russia
Reach out to our members of Congress and our local officials. Call about protecting the Mueller investigation, budget, Russia’s efforts to use social media to influence our presidential election, environmental issues, and the nomination of a non-scientist to be Chief Scientist at the EPA.
**UPDATE** Impeach Script moved up! This week’s scripts focus on climate, blocking bad judicial appointments, and stopping the tax scam, NOW. The Republican administration continues to try to unravel the Constitution and destroy the elements that make our country great. Indivisible is here to help us fight back! Please make your calls and send your email and faxes!
Budgets are the best way to calculate the moral center of government. How much does the government allocate toward controlling behavior, and how much to feed the poor, care for the ill, house the poor? Does the government put its money into streets and schools, into clean air and water, or does it put more dollars toward commerce?
The Republican budget is a perfect calculation of values. It increases spending for the military, border security, and school choice by taking funding from diplomacy, the EPA, HUD and other department budgets.
Without exception, each of us has shown these strengths of character during what has now become the most devastating disaster our communities have ever experienced.
We are showing endurance and determination in the face of extreme adversity. We are showing patience and love despite sleepless nights. As a community we are pulling ourselves up and coming together and are showing grit and grace and the truest nature of the human heart.
This is not over, and we are far from being done. This disaster has left its mark on each of us. But we are moving forward, inch by inch, because we know that the only way over is through.
Starting now, we are inviting each of us to reengage to the extent that we can, and in ways that feel the most meaningful. There is much to be done to support and rebuild our community, and local action is where many of us will want to focus. Others may find that we feel called to return to national and state action. We invite you to engage in rebuilding our community and our country.
RECESS IS BACK. The Senate goes on recess first from Oct. 9-13, followed the following week by the House from Oct. 16-20. Remember, this is your time and when you have the most power. Exercise it to pressure your Members of Congress (MoCs) on key issues like Trump’s tax scam, the DREAM Act, Children’s Health Insurance, Puerto Rico, and gun regulation.
