Fired Up Phone Scripts for 7.24.2017

To get you fired up for calls, here is a recent 'rant' from an Indivisible activist:

"There are now people in our government who want to change our government into something I don't want it to be. And they are moving to reduce and/or take away my power as a voter and citizen and resident of this country. And they are diminishing my significance while at the same time enhancing the importance of entities with lots of money/power/connections, and that is totally not okay.
Even if that group were not colluding with a foreign interest, which they clearly are, I do not like what they're doing domestically either. It's not fine to undermine voting integrity of the press or the public education system or the independent investigative departments or the judiciary or any of it. And it's a step worse when I consider they're working together with Russia, which they clearly are.”

This is why we phone, write, fax and email. Every day!

SAVE OUR HEALTHCARE

Hi, my name is _____ and I live in _____(zip). I am a member of Indivisible Sonoma County. I’m calling because the Republican Senate leadership intends to bring yet another challenge to the Affordable Care Act. Passing any version would result in 20 to 30 million Americans losing access to medical insurance.
Whatever efforts your Republican colleagues make to overturn the Affordable Care Act, I expect Senator [Feinstein or Harris} to use every tactic available to defeat the motion. Any bill that gives tax cuts to the wealthy and leaves sick Americans without insurance is wrong for the country.

SPECIAL COUNSEL

Hi, my name is _____ and I live in _____(zip). I am a member of Indivisible Sonoma County. The Republican President and his staff are currently challenging Robert Mueller’s capacity as Special Counsel. By suggesting that Mr. Mueller and his staff are biased, the Republican President is trying to cast doubt on any results of the investigation. I am calling to urge Senator [Harris or Feinstein] to strenuously object to each effort to delegitimization the investigation. Every senator needs to be on the record that firing Mr. Mueller or any of his staff is unacceptable and leads us closer to a Constitutional crisis.

TRUMP JR. AND MANAFORT

Hi, my name is _____ and I live in _____(zip). I am a member of Indivisible Sonoma County. Please tell the Senator that while I understand that testimony by Trump Jr. and Manafort could create a major spectacle on Capitol Hill, I am anxious that the Senator quickly question two men who are central figures in Trump campaign’s ties to Russia investigation. Their lawyers are going to play hard-ball!
I am concerned that the decision not to issue subpoenas requiring their presence at Wednesday’s public hearing further delays the American public’s right to get to the bottom of this serious issue. I understand that the Senator is working closely with Senator Grassley on this issue, but I am afraid the majority party will continue to drag their feet on the Russia matter. Please tell the Senator I support her getting Trump Jr and Manafort in front of the Committee ASAP.

NEW DREAM ACT

Hi, my name is _____ and I live in _____(zip). I am a member of Indivisible Sonoma County. Over and over the Congress has failed to pass the DREAM Act. This bi-partisan bill would open an accessible way to citizenship for children brought illegally into the US. This great idea is currently sponsored by Dick Durbin (Democrat from Illinois) and Lindsey Graham (Republican from South Carolina).
Is Senator Harris willing to co-sponsor and actively support this act?

RUSSIAN INVESTIGATIONS

Hi, my name is _____ and I live in _____(zip). I am a member of Indivisible Sonoma County. Congressman [Thompson or Huffman].I want you to know that the three key Russia investigations (Mueller, House & Senate) are very important to me. Domestic issues may impact my day-to-day life more, but I am very angry that our elections are now questioned and our laws are being violated. More and more I see this administration obstructing justice and that is not Ok with me. What will the Democratic House caucus do if:
1.    Mueller is fired, or if
2.    The Republican President issues blanket pardons?
The Democrats must walk out for the good of our country.

CONSUMER PROTECTION

Hi, my name is _____ and I live in _____(zip). I am a member of Indivisible Sonoma County. Congressman [Thompson or Huffman], I want to remind you that there’s an agency in Washington swimming against the Trump tide, and it needs your help! The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) just restored my ability take collective legal action against big corporate players like Wells Fargo Bank when they break the law.
But Trump’s friends in the House are voting to repeal this important new rule on Tuesday. Please leave the “Arbitration rule” in place and let the CFPB protect my rights without interference

DEPORTATION

Hi, my name is _____ and I live in _____(zip). I am a member of Indivisible Sonoma County. Congressman [Thompson or Huffman]. I feel strong feel that ANY budget that includes increases to Trump’s deportation force or any funding for Trump’s mass deportation agenda should NOT get your support, even if that means withholding the votes needed to avert a government shutdown. I want a federal budget that invests in families, not fear. Thank you!
