Drumpf’s Tax Scam

Here’s the first thing to know: this is not going to be true tax reform. Calling it “tax reform” suggests they intend to close corporate loopholes or address the growing wealth inequality that the current tax code fuels. But that’s not what Republicans have in mind.

The peer-to-peer tool is back: please sign up to make calls to progressives in Maine and Arizona.

Inclusion of the DREAM Act in the Funding Bill

Democrats have promised for three months that they will use their leverage on the December spending bill to get the DREAM Act done. Have them pledge the Dreamer Pledge. Nearly 1,000 will lose DACA each week.

Ask our MoCs to Keep us Safe From Drumpf

Drumpf is weakening our administration and threatening to spread racism and fear abroad. Ask our MoCs to protect us from him.

Protect Mueller’s Investigation

Senators can co-sponsor legislation to protect against a Mueller firing: S. 1735 led by Senators Graham and Booker, and S. 1741 led by Senators Coons and Tillis. Representatives in the House can co-sponsor H.R. 3771, led by Representatives Jones and Conyers.

Children’s Health Insurance Program

No one thought Congress would let CHIP funding expire on September 30, but that’s exactly what they did. Republicans invested so much time and energy in making one last push to pass TrumpCare, that they couldn’t find time to reauthorize a program giving 9 million kids health insurance.
