SHOW NOTES


BITCHFEST:

Those craven scumbags in the GOP have taken a bill to fix our National Instant Background Check System (NICS) and inserted into it the NRA’s number one priority: Concealed Carry Reciprocity.

Got that? A modest bill that arose from the outcry of the deadliest mass shooting in modern history has now been hijacked and perverted by a bill to put more guns in more hands.

The bill now goes to the Senate, where it needs 60 votes.

*CORRECTIONS:

  • The House voted to send the tax reform bill to CONFERENCE (not committee).
  • Ron Wyden is 68

THIS DOCTOR MAKES HOUSE CALLS:

FIRST ACTION OF THE WEEK!

Trump Tax Scam Round Two

The first round of the Trump Tax Scam passed but it is not law yet.  We can stop it in round two if we make noise. Get loud and ask Members of Congress vote NO on the Tax Plan and Ask for Trump’s Taxes.

The Trump Tax Scam will

  • balloon the deficit $1.5 trillion which will lead to massive cuts to social programs including Medicare and Medicaid with automatic cuts. http://bit.ly/2z09oOl. And the deficit will be used as a pretex to further gut social programs.  Paul Ryan is already talking about it http://bit.ly/2nFxb19.

SECOND ACTION:

Call Blue Senators about the spending bill that must pass this week.  This week the federal government will run out of money unless a new spending bill is passed.  The GOP has left many groups out in the cold and this is an opportunity for the Democratic minority to use their votes to protect Dreamers and healthcare.  So even if it risks a government shutdown, call your blue MoC and ask them to only vote yes on a spending bill if it has the Dream Act, funding for CHIP and funding for ACA.

BONUS ACTION

Committee to getting out the vote for a blue wave in 2018.  The only way to really stop the GOP from passing more bills like the Trump Tax Scam is to vote them out.  Right now they think they can’t be voted out due to gerrymandering, voter suppression, Russian interference and special interest money.  This is why each and every one of us must commit to doing all we can to. vote them out in 2018 – starting now.  Check out www.indivisible435.org and www.swingeleft.org to start.
