THIS DOCTOR MAKES HOUSE CALLS


Find your Reps and Senators

WE ARE UPPING THE GAME THIS WEEK FOLKS – 4 ACTIONS!

Congress needs to do their job. They need to pass a budget, protect Dreamers/TPS holders, fund Community Health Centers and protect our democracy. 

Scripts for these asks – make sure you say your name and ZIP CODE 

For the budget “I am very concerned about America’s about finances.  We are taking on debt at an alarming rate and the GOP is using this as an excuse to cut our safety net.  I urge the Senator/Rep to work to pass an actual budget (not a continuing resolution) and to make sure that all of our social programs are protected.”

For dreamers “I am very concerned about DREAMers and TPS recipients.  I ask [Name] to fight for legislation that: 1) provides permanent legal status to DREAMers and TPS holders AND does not harm our current immigration policy”

For CHCS: “It is vital that Congress reauthorizes the Community Health Center Fund. I am asking [Name] to stand firm and insist that CHCF be included in any budget agreement. We cannot allow basic health care for millions to be used as a bargaining chip”

For democracy: “I am outraged that Trump and his GOP allies are doing Putin’s business. I am asking the senator/rep to (1) cosponsor/support the special counsel integrity act; (2) censure Trump for both attacking the FBI and Justice Department and failing to impose sanctions on Russia to curtain future election hacking” 

Combine these asks, make separate calls, or leave a message after hours. It all counts. And after making the calls get your midterm game on. To fund every congressional race in the 2018 elections check out:.  Once we get the Congress we can start holding the GOP/Trump accountable starting with the list in this USA today article  and what Congressman Gallego (D-AZ) mentioned on Pod Save America
