The CBO has determined that the Senate GOP tax bill hurts the poor more than originally thought. (Wapo), (Wapo), (Time), (Axios), (aol.com) (DailyKos). There are those who are thrilled that 13 million Americans will once again have the “freedom” to choose between eating and paying for insurance, returning “control over their lives” and their health care to emergency room visits.
Mitch McConnell needs to pass the Senate version of the #TrumpTaxScam this week, possibly by Wednesday, if they’re going to be able to give Trump the multi-million dollar Christmas gift he’s demanding. This is our last chance to stop this very unpopular and destructive bill from becoming law.
Step #1. If we defeat it, Trump and the GOP are toast. Call our own senators!
Tell our Democratic senators to use every maneuver they have to delay the vote.
Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I’m asking Senator [___] commit to withholding consent on votes in the Senate so that we have time to mobilize against the Tax Scam bill, just like they did in the health care fight.
Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430
and Senator Harris: DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884

Step #2. Inspire progressives from GOP-controlled states to fight alongside us.
The HubDialer is a peer-to-peer dialing tool. Once you sign in, you can start making calls immediately to progressive voters in these states who could use some encouragement. You’ll get a script to make it easy to remind them why this fight against the #TrumpTaxScam is so important and to ask them to call their Senators to express their opposition. This awesome calling tool then allows you to patch them through right to their Senator’s office. You can also click on the state names above for specific details of losses their citizens will face if this terrible bill passes.
It’s super easy: 2,233 Indivisible volunteers across the country dialed 320,552 Calls to Kill TrumpCare tool to encourage constituents in Alaska, Arizona, Maine, and Colorado to call their Republican senators and tell them to vote no on Graham-Cassidy. And we won. We can win this time, too, with your help.
Step #3. Get your friends and family to call. Just tell them to call 1-855-980-2350 for lots of toll-free communication.
- Indivisible has set up a toll-free number to make it easier to call your Senators at 1-855-980-2350. That number will connect you or your family to one of your Senators and, if you call back again, it’ll automatically connect you to your other Senator.
- If you have a Republican Senator, use our call scripts to inform your conversation. Republicans need to hear just how much you hate this bill.
Here are some reasons to urge people to call:
Step #4. Per the “Daily Show”, tweet to Donald Trump that Obama thanks him for his awesome tax cuts.
