Thursday 11/30 Call to Action

Thursday 11/30

1. The Senate Tax Bill
We are still talking about this garbage tax bill. Krista did a great job of listing what we can do since our Senators are against this bill. Keep up the pressure.  
*Call constituents from key states and encourage them to contact their senators. Here is a guide to get that done.
*Sign this petition from Senator Maggie Hassan.
*Call Sens. Klobuchar and Franken and encourage them to fight for Minnesota. No more Minnesota nice!
*Tweet your heart out, especially if you have a GOP Congressman who voted for the House version of the bill.
Trump has spewed more lies about how this bill will not benefit the wealthy or his family,

2. Net Neutrality
Again, more of the same. These are such big issues!
*Call you members of Congress again and again (and again).
*Contact the FCC commissioners. Two of the five members have said they will vote no. We need to convince one more. Here is the contact information.
A) Ajit Pai:202-518-7399 / email: Twitter: @AjitPaiFCC,
B) Michael O'Rielly: 301-657-9092 / email: mike.o’ Twitter @mikeofcc, and
C) Brendan Carr: 202-719-7305/ email: Twitter: @BrendanCarrFCC
*Sign Senator Kamala Harris’ petition:…/tell-the-fcc-to-preserve\
*Here’s a quick and effective way to support net neutrality:
1. On a computer (not your phone!), go to
2. Under "Proceeding," enter 17-108.
3. In comments, say: "I support Title 2 oversight of ISPs, and I support net neutrality."
*Fill in the form carefully; they've deliberately made it less friendly to fill in by phone.
*Don't be silenced. DO IT NOW!
*Copy & Paste and Pass it on.
The FCC is due to vote on December 14th. Make a commitment to reach out once a day until then.
The September 30th deadline to reauthorize CHIP funding has long passed. Because of this some states may not be able to afford to cover health insurance for millions of children and pregnant women. Call your MOC and tell them they need to reauthorize CHIP funding.

House of Representative switchboard: (202) 224-3121
