This is a great opportunity to let them know what matters most to you; by phone or in person tell them:
- No more money for Trump’s deportation machine. Trump wants billions more in supplemental funding for detention beds, ICE boots, and deadly border enforcement. We’re hearing that Congressional Democrats have agreed to give him large portions of that money. Tell your member of Congress (MoC) that you expect them to #DefundHate by voting no on any additional money for Trump’s cruel immigration policies.
- Don’t let Trump get us into another endless war. After a week of stories about the Trump administration fueling conflict with Iran, led by noted war enthusiast and National Security Advisor John Bolton, it’s clear that Congress needs to act to prevent another endless war in the Middle East. Call your MoC and tell them to co-sponsor H.R. 2354 / S. 1039 to explicitly deny Trump the authority he needs to go to war with Iran.
- Democrats need to keep their promise on lowering drug prices by passing H.R. 1046. During the 2018 midterms, Democrats promised to unleash Medicare’s power to negotiate drug prices to make medicine more affordable. But now they’re considering a weak, arbitration-based approach, instead of strong legislation that would erode Big Pharma’s monopoly power. Call your MoC and tell them to reject arbitration, and to co-sponsor H.R. 1046 to lower drug prices.
