THIS DOCTOR MAKES HOUSE CALLS
Issues of the week:
Members of Congress have the honor of serving their country to help people. They must look past partisanship and power, do their duty, and work to protect us from white supremacy and gun violence.
Calls to congress:
Congress must protect us from white supremacy and gun violence. I ask the Senator/Rep to:
- Reject Trump’s white supremacy by pushing for passage of the Muslim Ban and Asylum Ban Repeal (S246/HR 246).
- Reject Trump’s racism by overriding his veto, thereby stopping emergency wall funding
- Addressing gun violence by passing back ground checks and an assault weapons ban.
The Democratic Primary debates must be about policy. It is up to us to get the candidates we want on that stage. A candidate must have 65,000 unique donors to qualify. Any donation counts. Let’s make sure the women are on that stage – donation links below:
LISTEN UP, DUMMIES!
No thanks Joe.
