Action 2: Call on Senators to Oppose Kavanaugh
Time is fast running out to keep an accused sexual abuser and opponent of women’s rights off of the Supreme Court. Both Senators Durbin and Duckworth have spoken out against Kavanaugh, but with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford bravely taking the stand in the Senate tomorrow, we want to make sure we have her back.
There is so much at stake with this nomination. Please call your Senators today and tell them that you believe Christine and that you want them to stand strong in their opposition to Kavanaugh.
Call Senator Duckworth | DC: 202-224-2854 | Chicago 312-886-3506
Call Senator Durbin | DC: 202-224-2152 | Chicago 312-353-4952
Script: Hello, my name is [NAME], and I’m calling from [ZIP CODE] with Indivisible. I’m calling to let Senator [NAME] know that I believe Dr. Blasey Ford and the other women who have accused Brett Kavanagh of sexual assault. It is shameful that the GOP is forcing a vote through without a thorough FBI investigation. I want Senator [NAME] to stand strong against his nomination and keep calling for a thorough investigation. Thank you.
Action 3: Tell Your House Rep to Oppose Trump’s Next Tax Scam
The GOP has admitted defeat the effects of their tax cuts. After their own polling found that most Americans believe the Trump Tax benefits corporations and the rich, a leaked internal memo noted that Republicans have “lost the battle” on tax cuts for the rich.
Because of the movement you’ve helped build, we’re winning the debate about their scam of a tax law.
BUT, House Republicans are still planning to vote on THREE Tax Scam 2.0 bills by Friday. These bills would make tax cuts for the rich permanent, add $627 billion to the deficit, and help the GOP justify cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
We can’t afford even one more penny in tax cuts for the rich -- contact your representatives right now and urge them to vote no on Tax Scam 2.0.
Script: Hello, my name is [NAME], and I’m calling from [ZIP CODE] with Indivisible. 'm calling about House Republicans' efforts to give another round of tax breaks to the rich. Despite overwhelming objections from voters like me, Congressional Republicans passed a massive tax cut for the rich and huge corporations, while at the same time raising health care premiums, and threatening Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. By any measurement, that tax bill has been a complete and utter failure for working Illinoisans.
It is outrageous that House Republicans are now attempting to do it again. Please do what's right and oppose giving even one penny more in tax cuts to the rich. Thank you.
