Right now I need you to stop reading this and pick up your telephone. Call your Senators. Send them a fax with ResistBot. Tweet to them (Twitter accounts for Senators can be found here.). Facebook them. Right now, we need to push harder than we’ve pushed yet.
Wednesday: Draft Your Own Healthcare Amendment
How are you doing, and how can I help?
There’s no need to rehash Friday’s terrible news that the Administration will withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord. We can’t do anything about that. Let’s talk instead about what we can do.
It’s time to once again deluge our Senators with calls regarding the ACA, and the terrible-awful ACHA. As you’ve likely heard, Senator McConnell assembled an all-male working group that he’s tasked with putting a passable bill together. Word on the street is that they are gauging whether it’s possible by the reactions they get from constituents during this recess.
The congressional investigations into Russia/Flynn/etc. are moving at a snail’s pace. Because Congress is led by the GOP, it looks like we should expect them to slow-roll those investigations until they get what they want from this POTUS. But, as I mentioned last week, there’s an expiration date on these delays – whether the GOP wants to admit it or not.
On Monday, May 15, the Washington Post broke the news that our Commander In Chief disclosed highly classified information . Today, and tomorrow, and Thursday, and Friday, call both Senators and your Representative and express your dismay, your concern, and your demands that they do something about this very dire situation.
As Napoleon once said – “Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.” This week’s actions are all intended to strike some fear in the GOP.
Four actions this week.
So much the same for us, fellow Resisters. There will be days when the winds are so fierce and so violent that any one of us would be toppled. There will be days when the flood is so deep and the water so murky that any one of us would be drowned. And there will be days when we think we just can’t keep standing. It’s on those days when our greatest strength, our unity, will carry us on.
