TODAY’S ACTION: HIGHLY IMPORTANT!

Please call both numbers for Hoeven and Cramer’s offices to tell them to vote no on the tax reform bills! The Senate bill is being modified to include repealing the individual mandate on the ACA.  We need to register our disagreement with these plans this week in droves.  Keep calling!  Tell a friend, too!

Also if you have a chance this week to stop by either of their offices, please do!

TODAY’S ACTION: Keep the Alternative Minimum Tax

Say no to eliminating the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT). We’re targeting Hoeven and Cramer on the ND side and Peterson on the MN side as he hasn’t released how he’ll vote yet.

TODAY’S ACTION: Say no to corporate tax cuts

Call and/or send a resistbot to Hoeven and Cramer to ask them to vote no on corporate tax cuts. Corporations already have plenty of money and I don’t see any of that trickling down currently. They are only getting richer while the poor and middle class’s income growth stagnates.

TODAY’S ACTION: Take a stand for women

For those on the MN side, please call and/or email Sen. Kent Eken and Rep. Ben Lien to ask them to take a stand and demand that Sen. Dan Shoen resign immediately. Also request a bill passed that would require sexual harassment training for all on a yearly basis.

TODAY’S ACTION: Reverse Robin Hood tactics

Call and/or send a resistbot text to your reps and ask them to vote no on the GOP tax reform plan. The majority of the plan is geared towards the top 1% and corporations already worth millions/billions of dollars. It’s a huge redistribution of wealth from people like us to the ultra-wealthy. And it increases the deficit significantly over the next 10 years.

TODAY’S ACTION: Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha going to do when they come for you

It is imperative that we call both Cramer and Hoeven today to ask them what they will do if/when Trump fires Mueller. It seems to be only a matter of time before he does so and we’d be facing a huge constitutional crisis if the GOP decides to do nothing.

Manafort and his former business partner Rick Gates were ordered to surrender this morning. There are many articles in the news today to catch up on so I’m including a few links below.

TODAY’S ACTION: Support a bi-partisan fix to the ACA

Please call and/or send a resistbot text to your reps to let them know you support a bi-partisan fix to at least keep health care stable for the next couple of years and not increase the deficit.
