THIS DOCTOR MAKES HOUSE CALLS:
MAIN ASK OF THE WEEK:
Every day is a “Twofor” – Trump Tax Scam Round Two and Continuing Resolution
Every day this week we are calling to say “I’m calling for two reasons. First vote NO on the tax bill. Second only vote yes on the next continuing resolution if it has a clean DREAM Act, permanent CHIP funding and disaster relief”
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. The Trump Tax Scam has left the middle class behind http://wapo.st/2AryUgu and its deficit is being used to justify cuts to Medicare http://lat.ms/2BtSp8d.
Last week a 2-week continuing resolution passed. We are a bit confused why Democratic leadership didn’t take a stand on the DREAM Act, CHIP and disaster relief http://nyti.ms/2jnv8gK. We need to make it clear to all MoCs, but especially blue MoCs, that they can only vote yes on a continuing resolution if it has clean DREAM Act, permanent CHIP funding and disaster relief.
If your blue MoC voted yes on last week’s continuing resolution ask them why they made that vote when the resolution had no clean DREAM Act, permanent CHIP funding and disaster relief? Let us know what you hear out there. We assume there is some strategy and would like to understand it.
