Action #1 – Got GOP senators? Tell them to stop being such big babies.
H.J. Res 46 – the resolution to end Trump’s #FakeNationalEmergency, passed the House last week and it’s heading for a vote in the Senate. Mitch McConnell is now dealing with an explosion of defecting GOP senators, possibly 15, which puts it in striking range of a veto-proof majority and a huge and embarrassing defeat for the president. Many GOP senators are now swarming about, trying to subvert the intent of the House Resolution so that the president won’t give them a sad nickname.
“I think people want to find a way to give the president all the money he asked for but yet discourage the use of emergency declarations,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).
No, Senator, that’s not at all what people want. That’s what you nervous weasels want.
- We want him to stop stealing American taxpayer dollars to prop up his reelection campaign by keeping ridiculous promises to people who believed Mexico would pay for a wall.
- We want him to stop stealing American taxpayer dollars from HUD, DHS and the Army Corps of Engineers to pay for this medieval wall, which was revealed by the El Chapo trial to be completely useless.
Minimal script to a GOP senator: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Sen. [___] to know how disappointed I am in [his/her/their] willingness to let a president seize yet another power from Congress and to allow my tax dollars to be wasted on this wall.
Action#2 – Tell your senators to stop Trump from swiping money for the wall.
Minimal script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Sen. [___] to cosponsor S.534 – “A bill to prohibit certain funds from being transferred or reprogrammed to plan, develop, or construct a new physical barrier along the southwest border, and for other purposes.”
(Sen-check here. Thank Sen. Kamala Harris for already signing and ask Sen. Feinstein to cosponsor too.)
Action#3 – Ditto for your representatives
Minimal script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Rep. [___] to cosponsor H.R.1214 – “Protecting Disaster Relief Funds Act of 2019“, that will specifically bar Trump from talking irresponsible and illegal actions.
