Tuesday 12/19 Call to Action

1. Tax Bill
The House is set to vote today and the Senate either tonight or tomorrow. With Sens. Collins and Corker on board now, it is most likely going to pass. Keep calling today and tomorrow. Make it as uncomfortable as possible for them while they screw over the middle class.
With the tax bill behind them, Congress will need to focus on the budget bill in order to keep the government running. The Republicans cannot pass this without the help of Democrats. We can encourage our senators to insist that clean versions of the DREAM Act and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) are included
2. High Alert: Protecting the Trump/Russia Investigations
Join March for truth and experts Zac Petkanas, Norm Eisen, and Lisa Gilbert as they discuss the Trump administration’s attempt to impede Robert Mueller’s investigation. This one you can do in your PJ’s at home!
Wednesday, December 20th at 7 pm (Minnesota time).

3. The Tragedies in Myanmar
Thank you S. M. for this call to action. With the never ending tumult occurring in American politics it is easy to put your head down and shut out the world. For months now unfathomable brutalities have been happening in Myanmar against the Rohingya people.

In October, Sens. McCain, Durbin, Young, and Cardin proposed the Burma Act of 2017.

HR4223 https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/4223
This bill would impose sanctions on the Myanmar military to convince them to stop their campaign of genocide against the Rohingya. I think the bill could garner bipartisan support if only Majority Leader McConnell would let it come to the floor for a vote.
America is having a crisis of identity. At its heart, I believe that America is good and stands for the humane treatment of all people regardless of geography. Let’s remind our members of Congress who we really are. Contact them today and encourage them to support this bill.
