This Week:

Rebecca, Smitha and Megan discuss “likability” and policies for the people, and then we chat with Oregon Governor Kate Brown about kicking ass in her re-election campaign, why representation matters and more!

BITCHFEST:

THIS DOCTOR MAKES HOUSE CALLS

Action of the week: 

As of our taping the shutdown is on going STILL and the Democrats have come out with bold plans for governing.  House Dems passed a rules package and introduced HR1 – a sweeping anti-corruption, voting rights bill.  It is supplemented by Wyden and Blumenauer’s Vote by Mail Companion bill and will have a companion bill introduced in the Senate by Merkley. For now, we need to call to pass HR1 and to get the government reopened. 

Calls to congress 

  • For all Senators but Manchin, Sinema, Jones, Menendez : “My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and I and live in ZIP code [number]. I expect to see the Senate govern this year.  I thank the Senator for refusing to vote on any Senate legislation until a bill to reopen the government is brought to a Senate vote. I also ask that he/she co-sponsor Senator Merkley’s HR1 Senate companion bill. Thank you.” 
  • For Manchin, Sinema, Jones, Menendez: “My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and I and live in ZIP code [number]. I expect to see the Senate govern this year.  I ask the Senator to vow not to vote on any Senate legislation until a bill to reopen the government is brought to a Senate vote. I also ask that he co-sponsor Senator Merkley’s HR1 Senate companion bill. Thank you.”
  • For Reps: “My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and I and live in ZIP code [number]. I expect to see the House of Representatives govern this year.  I ask the Representative to work with Speaker Pelosi to pass HR 1 immediately with no watering down of is provisions, and work to pass individual appropriation bills to reopen the government. Thank you.”
