Indys...if you have never done any action, or if you are a daily caller, please STEP IT UP this week via phone, social media, letters to the editor, calls to Senators, and outreach to friends and family out of state. Here is our two-step plan...
Today’s scripts for Senators continue to focus on healthcare and the procedures that lead up to a vote in the Senate prior to July 4th. There are also scripts for those with Republican Senators who have not yet committed to their position. Indivisible encourages us to use our networks to find friends living in those states to make calls to their senators. Those numbers and scripts are at the bottom of this page.
Scripts thank Senator Harris for her strength, and ask both our Senators to be strong with the Comey testimony /Mueller investigation. We ask that Senator Feinstein oppose the nomination of Bush for the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, and thank our Congressmen for ensuring that California moves forward into a cleaner and healthier 21st Century.
We are charged up and ready to fight! We are angry about the Administration’s secretive and all-too-cozy relationship with Russia. We are fearful about the future of healthcare. Indications are that the budget and tax plan will only benefit the wealthy. We foresee a long and arduous road ahead to make substantive change in our country, and that is why we say this is a marathon!
These scripts thank our MOCs for holding firm on the appointment of a Department of Justice special counsel. We want to have faith in the DOJ process; we also want our legislators to explore the best and most transparent options to inform the public about all possible violations of the law, collusion with foreign powers, abuse of power, or any obstruction of justice.
We have several new and dynamic scripts available this week. The new scripts primarily thank our Members of Congress for their steadfastness in the midst of a confusing and untenable situation in Washington D.C. and ask them to go further to ensure they defend our most basic democratic institutions and values.
Representative Huffman also provided the money quote of the evening: “Maybe he’ll leave us for a younger country.”
We’re all gobsmacked about James Comey’s firing. We’re angry, frustrated, even despondent. We find ourselves swimming ever against the torrent of Trump’s assaults, but even if you find yourself wading in the muck, maintain a forward momentum at whatever pace you’re able. Martin Luther King Jr. reminded us, “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
Wow The Senate Intelligence Committee’s hearing with former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates was intense. But the impetuous #45 fired FBI Director Comey with no warning and no finesse. He didn’t even call him. But we can call. Our senators and representatives need to hear from us. Let’s call about the investigation, the developing picture of Russian intervention, and the Republican President’s reaction.
Your voices have stopped Trump and Ryan from repealing the ACA twice. This is the moment, it’s time to stop them once again. Republicans are saying that the vote will occur about 1:00 pm ET Thursday. So call now! Note we have two options for the oppose AHCA scripts. Other scripts support legal action against Trump and protecting future elections from interference.
Our scripts thank our MoC's for their strong statements on the first 100 days, and for most aspects of the bi-partisan compromise announced Sunday night to keep the government open. We are VERY pleased the ACA has stayed in place but we are devastated by the constant assault on the judiciary, immigrants and the environment. We encourage you to make these scripts your own.
We have 48 hours to defeat TrumpCare... again. And it's going to come down to YOUR constituent power. Use the information in this document to make sure that your representatives are committed not only to upholding the ACA as a law but supporting it as a means for affordable health care coverage for millions of Americans.
Today we focus our scripts on defending the ACA, keeping the government from shutting down, defending our national monuments, and defending Americans from what the administration is calling a tax policy, but is really an expensive tax cut for the wealthy. So you see how defensive we are! #Resist!
