Issues of the week: KEEP MULTI TASKING

One year ago we saved the ACA.  And we proved that if we stand up for our values we can win. And now we need to stand up to save the supreme court, save families, and save our elections. Below is an updated script on these topics 

CALL EVERY DAY.  ABOUT 2-3 THINGS. MULTI TASK.

YOR: Hi.  I would like to leave 3 comments for the Senator/Rep

Staff: I can take those down

YOU Thanks my name is XXX and I’m from zipcode XXX: #1 I’m disturbed by the abuse at the border.  I would like the Senator/Rep to do all he/she to pass the REUNITE Act and introduce legislation to expunge all criminal records and provide a path to citizenship, #2 I would like the Senator/Rep to protect our elections and pass the PAVE act and pass the Lehey Amendment. #3 (for senators only) I would like the Senator to do all he/she can to stop Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination and ask to see all his records.  No vote can be held until all his records are out. 

Why Brett Kavanaugh is bad:

The fate of the ACA could turn on Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh has a clear record against Roe v Wade

Does Kavanaugh spell the end of voting rights?

Kavanaugh is no fan of net neutrality rules  

Kavanaugh could tip the Supreme Court against gun control laws 

Kavanaugh’s criticism of the United States v Nixon 

Bush claimed power to override a torture ban.  What did Kavanaugh think about that?
